Ok, I finished one head and got the other one apart and measured my quench this afternoon after my doctors app. I came up with 0.0260 in the hole. I'm running a 4 valve relief flat top that i'm guessing is around +6 vol. and the Vortec heads at 64cc. Like I said earlier, i'm running the Summit K1103 cam-Advertised Duration 272/282, Lift .442/.465 on a 112lsa. The way I figured it, keep in mind i'm still learning on DCR and SCR, I need to run a .028 head gasket. Am I on the right track? If so what do ya'll think about this gasket- Chevrolet Performance Head Gaskets 14096405 - ? Is there a better gasket both quality and price? If i'm completely off base lol, what gasket do I need to run with my setup? I'm shootin for as close to 10.1cr as I can get. Thanks.
