Ask your engine builder what the compressed thickness of your new gasket is compared to your old gasket. This can effect your compression ratio.

Will I run into any issues running head gaskets this size? The engine will see some nitrous.(150-250 shot)
Also, where is your piston deck when the engine is cold? Is it above the block, equal to the block, or below the block?
