AVO in Aus used to list one . I contacted them about it once and they suggested just using two stock head gaskets. Don't know what the revised CR would be with either mod. I'm sure someone on here knows the math to be able to figure it out. <p></p><i></i>

If you want to lower compression you're better off reprofiling the chamber to get rid of some of the masking round the valves.<br><br>Iain <p></p><i></i>

RZM sells a copper headgasket for the G13B. I think it come in 3 different thickness. .040, .080, ??? So using a thick one will lower your compression. Ask Bolivar, I'm sure he knows better. <p></p><i></i>

the avo decompression plate uses 2 standar gasket on both side of the deco plate. it depends on how much you want to get.<br>Iain, i have made numbers already, i think it´s quite a lot what i need to remove, does it guide to over heating head too???<br><br> <p>Oscar Bartol.

Dave,<br><br>Im over in Perth and quite often see an add in Fast Fours and Rotaries for these copper head gaskets. You may need to add vernier gears to the cams to get your timing right, if you lift the head too high. It my opinion, it is a shitty way to lower the compression. If you have/or are going the turbo, then as others have suggested, I would go the G16 piston route.<br><br>Shane <p></p><i></i>
