    Yup. Thicker head gasket is the cheap way. Aftermarket forged pistons are the way to go though.

    A thicker head gasket is about the worst way to do it because you lose your quench area clearances. If you want boost, undo whatever you did to increase your compression. What's your setup, anyway?

    Did u get any other valve-train componets to go along with that, or just a cam, most of time Skunk 2 reccomends upagradeing your entire valvetrain if you get stage 2... oh and a swap bar doesnt count as a performance part :D

    sway bar? It counts as a suspension upgrade, so in a way it is performance

    Anyway, keep everything you got and just replace the pistns with some low comp and some eagle rods, I've heard so many things about block guards but since you'll be in there anyway throw it in. Now up top if you haven't already upgraded that valvetrain do it. Just that will cost you like a"g", then i'd reccomend a t3 and a good fmic intercooler, and a hondata system with boost plus all the piping and etc. You can push at least 12 lbs with that. Stock internals can handle about 8 pis froma t3 so if thats all your plannng on running disregard everything i said besides pistons and valvletrain.
