I want to run a 2.0 liter 16v (9a) bottom end with 1.8 liter 8v digi 2 head(P&P, 3 angle, hortech270 cam).
I know that compression would be around 13:1
I am looking to get my compression to about 11.5 or 12:1
I found crazy guy that runs this setup with 3 stacked head gaskets.
He told me that his compression is about 11.75:1
Does anyone have this swap in their car?
Any advise?
Does anyone know of anyone that makes thicker copper head gaskets? I need a 2.0 liter 16v head gasket
any help would be great

thanks

the only 16v part your using is the block, which is very much the same for 16v and 8v, id ask in the 8v forum
