    don't have it milled too much or the head will be trash.

    30 or 40 thousandths should be ok.

    just have it cleaned up and milled .10 thousands. .40 is too much IMO

    also if you want to up your compression milling the head is the easy way but not the best way, just get some different pistons if you want to up the compression
