How's it going?
I'm in the process of building a 2.0 16v for my Scirocco. It is going to be all motor and so am looking for the best head gasket on the market to bump up the compression. Any ideas????

Use the stock gasket. Bump up your compression by either shaving down your head (very slightly), or installing high comp pistons.

yeah the head is getting shaved very, very slightly. I was just seeing what my options were as far as getting more compression from the head gasket. I figured that you can lower the compression with a different head gasket so why not raise it http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
