if you get the cylinder head shaved, do you need a thicker head gasket to maintain compression ratio, or is the amount you would change that negligible?
>>24201136Back in the day it'd give you a nice bump in compression, nowadays many cars are already running plenty of compression so it depends.
>>24201136Not if you only had it milled to get it flat again after warping it.
>>24201136Just resurface it and run it
>>24201136Look up your combustion chamber's dimensions and volume and do the math...They taught you how in the 3rd grade.
>>24201136>will removing 0.005" from my 3-4" stroke change muh compression ratio!?if you have crippling autismyou never want to run a thicker head gasket, thinner seals better. Spacers are a thing, but not because of compression. When you start shaving wild shit like 20 thou+, you run the risk of fucking your timing up if you have an OHC.
>>24201136Can't mill too far down on an OHC
