I belive it's the ratio of the space in the cylander from when the piston is at top dead center, to when it's at the bottom of it's travel path. Something to that effect. Or I could be totally wrong....

We have an 11.0.1 CR. Basically that means that the pistons take 11 parts of a particular volume of gas and compresses it to 1/11th its original volume.
