Sucks to hear that bro. Maybe you should do a double check on those numbers and do the test over. Do a wet test too. I personally find it odd its running ok but low compression.
Just to save you hassle of tearing into it. Good luck bro

Already double and triple checked, and even had a leak down test done. It showed 97% leakage in number 1 with the other three not far behind. Tested compression again with heavier weight oil and the numbers increased, that points to rings.
On top of all that, I went out that night and raced a GMS1 + boltons SS/TC and killed it. I don't know
Thanks man. If it is indeed the rings and cylinders, it will be built up again, and this time even stronger than the last, with the sleeves from hnbracing. I don't know if I'll go with the gapless rings like I did last time, I don't think that was the issue, but maybe a traditional set of rings would be better.
