I have located an engine to swap and need to know what the cylinder compression test-out should be across all 5 pots. Any help is appreciated!

Usually 140-160 is the range (and depending on whether the block is hot or cold etc...
As long as they're consistent through all cylinders you should be fine

I would want 140psi minimum on a warm/coldish engine. If they are dipping into the 120's, there are probably issues even if they are even across the board.

Right, 140 to 160 but across all 5.
For example, 5x150 is preferred to 4x150 and 1x130....even though it's in range everyone I've seen one that's off than the rest it was cause for concern.
