Default Best head gasket for boost?

Yes we discussed this on the other forums, but following up on it here: Are any Felpro headgaskets supposed to be good for boost? Going to Advance and Autozone, they dont seem to list any that specifically mention it. I know Cometic mentions it specifically and lists thicknesses..

unless you want to experiment with compression ratios, you should probably stay with stock. if you do decide to use a different thickness, than go a tiny bit thicker to lower compression.

crazy, i never thought of that. does a taller headgasket (i mean, they arent THAT thick..) really measurably lower compression?

if milling a head to remove a few thousandths does, then yes, a few thousandths thicker gasket will too.
