As I understand it, increasing your compression ratio will increase your thermal efficiency (ie less waste heat per unit of kinetic energy produced), but in absolute terms it will increase the amount of waste heat produced. Any authorities out there care to dig into their mechanical engineering text books and clear this one up? Anyone up for some D&D in Blake's parents' basement?
