    Hello i've read a post on a here a while back and it said that if you were to buy a OEM head gasket and take out the middle piece it would end up being like a Mugen gasket or so.....and by doing this compression is slightly raised......is this true???....i will be replacing an head gasket on a 94 GSR and if this works will the outcome of the raised compression harm the motor in any way??...thank you and have a nice day!!!

    don't do it. the gain isn't worth the risk of the shitty seal

    if u want the gain of the mugen gasket, just by a lower profile gasket, alot of companies make them, and they wont fuck u over. im looking into that right now myself on my LS.

    just go to any lordco or local parts place and ask them if they have any compression raising, or slimmer racing head gaskets, they will probably know.
