Looking for thinner head gaskets

Recommended Posts

Anybody know who makes a thinner head gasket than stock? Looking for 07-08 and 09-10 year models.

Milling the head or running thinner gaskets will retard your cam timing.

The cam timing will be slightly retarded but not enough to be of any consequence.

A thinner base gasket would accomplish the same goal.

The 07/08 uses the same gasket as the X model which is a 3 piece gasket. The 06 or earlier is an R model gasket and 2 piece so a 1/3 thinner i presume. 09 on i think are different again.

why would you want a thinner head gasket?

I presume for a higher comp? Honda fitted the thicker one to lower it. Not sure exactly how much difference it makes.

it would be easier to just buy a hi-comp piston since they come from 11.5-14.5:1
