Default Valve Compression Question

I have a 1993 Honda Accord LXsedanwith an F22B2 engine in it, I am not sure if the previous owner had installed the prelude enginehead that i find popular on this website, but the car feels likeanything other than stock.

I want to know if the head was installed, does the compression need to be tightened to match the enginehead, or can it be left untouched?

My uncle had loosened the compression and it was running fine, until last weekend when I heard some of my valves missalined im guessing ( a weird noise when compared to how it sounded before from the engine).
