Yup.  #5 especially.  I would be reluctant to put stock horsepower through an 
engine with an anomally like that for very long.  It's not unusual for I5s to 
have almost perfect compression after 100000+ miles, and it's also not unusual 
to find #5 lowest of the lot.  I certainly wouldn't want to stress the engine 
any more than designed until I'd had a look.
