    Whats the OEM style gasket thickness? I need to lower my compression a little bit, like 4-6 cc's. I am running 305 heads. Anybody know what size gasket to get?

    for the most part they're .025. replacement gaskets are generally .039-.041. has your block been decked at all?

    No, they have not been decked. Do you think there will be a intake fit issue?

    if they havent been decked dont go any thinner than .015". you shouldnt have any problems fitting an intake. throw the rubber end seals in the trash and use black silicone.
