This ^^^

2.4mm is way too thick for a head gasket

Emanage is barely acceptable, IMO, do a standalone.

Gte gasket lowers compression to essentially 9.3 to 1. Which is perfect, imo.

I run 10:1 on e85 and wouldn't mind a little higher even. Spool is amazing, low end torque too.

Oh dam that crazy did you get it tuned right away or did you drive it without and are you going full standalone and I live in Cali where 91 is the highest gas I was planning on using meth inj. To help keep it cool but where I love it doesn't get passed 70
