Compression ratio...

Does a thicker headgasket increase or decrease compression ratio? I'm thinking since it's gonna be taller, it's gonna increase stroke and increase cr. Someone tell me if I am right and if not, let me know. Thanks.

My guess is that it would decrease. More space in the the motor less compression. But, like I said, it is only a guess.

Thicker decreases comp ratio

Ummmmmmmm, stoke is determined by the crankshaft, it has NOTHING to do with the thickness of your head gasket.
BTW, a thicker gasket decreases compression ratio and vice versa.

Yah I realize that now, more volume. Thanks all.
