Who makes the best head gasket? How many layers are in a honda oem head gasket?
How many layers are in a honda oem head gasket?
What if I want to raise my compression; does anyone make head gaskets for that?
cometic... usually a 2 or 1 layer will raise the compression.
if you want to raise compression get pistons, taking a layer out of the oe gasket will raise it by roughly .1-.2 compression points. Not worth it at all, I did it and my headgasket blew out after 20k, go figure and learn from others mistakes also.
well if u really looking to get more compression and like to try thinner gaskets and got the money
Spoon makes a 2 layer gasket for the Vtec blocks
and of course Mugen does too but it is one layer I believe for the Vtec blocks
Sorry us Ls/Vtec's need to custom our shit
these are the other companies beside
I would rather mill the head than run a thinner headgasket.
That way you don't have to worry about blowing it.
With milling you can easy add another .5 safely (by removing .03")
