    just a note, the stock Honda gaskets are very well made and remember that if you go thicker you might change your compression a little

    not personally but it's been done many times.........if you go aftermarket you dont have to go thicker Greddy[I think] makes stock size gaskets,thicker is not always better just more gasket area to fail,if you are really worried some people have O ringed 4 cyl's but it's a pretty involved process for really extreme use

    Since you have balls posting a post on how much we are posting on hp, post some Hp figures yourself, if your 81mm then stick wtih oem. if not then go larger, if you need a larger bore than do a search online.
