Raising Compression?

Postby britx303 » Sun Jun 07, 2015 8:11 am

Okay,Im looking for a couple more ponies out of my engine,FZR600. We are discussing decking the head to raise compression and tune from there.Question is.....Can I use a Cometic head gasket at .010" and get the same outcome? I cant find the stock thickness info anywhere. Has anyone here used the cometic head gasket for the same purpose with good results? or would I be wasting time?

Are you going to run 110 octane fuel?

Skimming the head will raise it slightly. Ultimately though, i'd have thought the quickest way to gain HP would be to drop the 750 head and pistons in..?
