    Head Gasket

    I did some searching and get 2 different answers. Taking out the middle layer of head gasket nets me how much more compression? I have read 5psi and also 10psi. I have to run on 87 octane so this may be my only alternative since the family rides this alot and fills it with whatever they have. Anyone know for sure what compression gain you will see and is it even worth it?

    I got about 5psi for removing the middle layer and another 5psi by removing another layer and only running a single layer of head gasket.
    I don't see any down side to removing the middle layer of the 3 layer gasket.
