Arrow Head gasket thickness? 2mm? 3mm etc??

I'm getting ready to do an upgraded head gasket from cometic and wanted to ensure it has the correct thickness when compared to the stock US 2.5L sti gasket.

This thread is pretty old....

ECS went with the stock sti gaskets.

The cometic 2mm gasket bring CR a little more inline with WRX heads on the 2.5 but increases quench by a lot, which is bad.
