I had mentioned that once. Dan The Man at Motoxotica got me the thicker head gasket for my 01 470.

Re: thicker headgasket?

Can I ask a question as to why would you want a thicker gasket?
Wouldn't that decrease the compression?

Just wondering...

Maybe he has a leaky head gasket? Perhaps the stocker is too thin and doesnt seal properly?

Re: thicker headgasket?

perhaps he once had the perfect squish gap but now has piston slap making the piston 'tilt' at one end and tap the piston.

get a new piston taffy boy!

Did not think it was possible to have that much piston slap!Is the piston contacting the head?.What are you seeing Taff.
