    Adding thin head gasket to Riva Stage 3 Setup wise or pushing it

    I know stage 3 parts havent been released yet but considering the setup would adding compression be beneficial to it. My experience with boost is that lowering compression and raising boost always gives the best results meaning leaving it the way it is would be best. If we bumped up the compression which isn't much with the gasket do you think it would help out or maybe slow it down, cause detonation, have to run better gas, etc. just trying to find some theory before trying it out.

    I wouldn't mess with it.

    Im going to put the Stage 3 on Careys ski. That stock head gasket is staying on.
