Well I know that lower is better when turboing, but people are saying that with to low of compression the power will suffer.. Wrong? The 22t pistons will lower it already to 8 something and if I used ej25 heads it would drop it even lower....... I don't understand it that well :)

You can run higher compressions with turbos, it just really comes down to how tune savvy you (or your tuner) is. Higher compressions increase the chance of detonation. In theory you can tune to avoid this, but I think it's generally considered easier to tune a lower compression motor when boosting. If you want a higher effective compression ratio, just run a slightly higher boost.
