Pulled this out from an old post:
The phase one head gaskets are .060" thick, with the phase two at .020".
The cometic are .040" or .051", using either of these will raise your compression, change your cam timing and possibly result in a piston to head collision.
Be carefull, everything comes at a cost
Is it true? That would mean that using cometic gaskets on a phase 2 block would actually lower its compression.
I think Matt Monson also said that you can't use thinner head gaskets on ph1 blocks because the piston clears the deck on those.
