Lowering Compression the easy way-M42

I want to stack some headgaskets for high boost. don't tell me I'll blow up...i already know that. I need some good gaskets that wont blow out. solid and hopefully stackable and good for my application. any ideas?

Stacking head gaskets is a NO.

If you want to do it you will have to have a custom copper gasket made. This can obviously be as thick as you need it to be.

Why though?

Nah man, you should put one extra head gasket for every lb of boost you are running.

Cometic, they make layered head gaskets and you can re-use them.
