    buy a thicker head gasket from cometic, you can call them yourself and have them make it to your specs for thickness or order one off of kingmotorsports.com

    King Motorsports Unlimited, Inc. (head gaskets are down the page a bit)

    and check out the zealautowerks compression calculator, its the most accurate calculator on the internet that i have found

    ZealAutowerks - Honda Compression Calculator

    p.s. your compression ratio should be around 11:1 or 11.04:1 with integra type r internals and around 13:1 with civic type r internals, so i'd imagine its around 11:1 or else it'd be ridiculous to run on pump gas

    Uh, look closer. There's a box at the bottom that says "effective compression ratio", and a whole bunch of other stuff...
