damn. im having trouble figuring out what compression ratio i want to run. if i use the stock sti head gaskets. i will be at 8.9:1 and if i use the cometic .051" (1.3mm) ill be at 8.5:1. but i also heard that running a thicker head gasket isnt too great. they sell a .045" (1.1mm) head gasket that should leave me around 8.7:1 compression ratio.
im about to start on my porting of the heads (just a light port and i dont think im going to take off too much material alter the flow)
