    hey everyone, im new to buildin hondas so im asking questions so i can build my ls/vtec right. im planning on turbo'ing the motor and im gunna need to lower my compression. i was wondering if it would be better to lower the compression with a head that has bigger chambers and use a thicker head gasket or if iwould net more power by lowering the ratio with pistons. either way the pistons are going to be replaced, i would just like to know which option will give me more power and longevity over all. also, if you could give me reasoning for answers so i can learn wut works best that would be greatly appreciated. thanks again.
