Hello!
I have shaved some 16V PL pistons to be used with the forced induction.
So i shaved the head of the piston 1,55MM which is exactly the same hight of a 3-layer head gasket.
I measured the thickness of the head on a G60 stock piston and it is 8MM, the Stock 16V PL piston is 6,55MM and now shaved is 5MM thick.
So i want to know if someone else has done this and how it works?
I'm worried because i don't know if the piston head is too weak for 16VG60.

Well, i what peoples opinions.

you measured a head gasket when it is crushed by force of the head bolts? or new? or what?

Sam they measured is a new headgasket, Metal 3-Layers.

get another set of pistons and trash those. just stack head gaskets or get forged set of pistons for 16v FI

stacked gaskets have worked well for over a year for me so far...talk about easy!

How much boost? Just stock 16V pistons? How much WHP ? Which setup?
Thanks
