Sti block and WRX heads? Use .051" thick COMETIC head gaskets for a 8.5:1 CR. If you use the OEM Sti gaskets you'll get a 9.17:1 CR. Also, you can use the RS head gasket and get something like 8.8:1. The last one I'm not 100% sure.

With the OEM gaskets you will have to watch boost/timing as your CR will take the place of the higher boost levels. I was running abour 18-19psi on my VF22(stock pistons)
With the .051" Cometics I can run up to 22 psi as my CR is lower now. I had to retune the map completely.

use the stock head gaskets. that is what i am using. you will make more power with less timimg ,and less boost. that all equals better and safer power.my tuner perfers the stockers over the cometic. they also throw you timing off a bit.i have 2 extra sets of new head gaskets also i will sell ya a set.
