Hey guys, I'm busy with a top end inspection and as such, I'm replacing gaskets. This is on my E which I'm adventure prepping, so reliability comes before performance for me on this one, I have my SM which I do power mods on. I have the 3 layer base gasket here which I know lowers the compression to the S and SM's 11.3:1 and I know I can split them to have my original 12.1:1 but I'm wondering if I should just use the lower compression 3 layers as this is a reliability/adventure build which means I could at some point be forced to use low octane or just plain sh*t fuel. Also the lower compression should be easier on the motor as a whole. What are the member's opinions on this, is it worth the little bit of performance loss or should I just split the gaskets and keep the high compression? Thanks in advance for replies, I'll be putting her back together in the morning.
