    Honda makes a good head gasket for your car. Try a little less boost.

    or some ARP head studs. those will make more difference than any gasket.

    head studs are useful at 7psi. or over 8k rpm. you'll find much more reliability with studs than any gasket. besides, most gaskets will only recommend studs with their product, with the exception of the OEM one, which will recommend that you don't turbocharge their engineering masterpiece.

    Where you running stock head bolts, because you could have stretched them. Id wait for Blanco, he is Mr. D-series, he'll know what to tell you.
