Hi All...Have the engine out of my MG TF 160 to do some work on the subframe. However forgot to do a compression test b4 I took the engine out.

Is it possible to do a compression test with the engine out of the car and what readings should I get.

Many thanks

Thanks for that. I had seen that. I assumed the engine should be hot so perhaps the question should be how to warm the engine up out of the car

I think it's more important to get consistent readings across all four than to worry about the engine being up to temp.

That's assuming the readings cold are consistently above zero!
