unless you go drastically towards one extreme or the other (and even then...), i don't think hg thickness will change your compression enough to worry about.

fair enough, I was just saying that the gasket itself shouldn't change anything much, assuming that the head and block haven't had the shit milled out of them.

I just got a stock hg from Don he had lying around without even giving much thought to my compression. The head was only milled a few thou. and given the amount of (or lack of) power I'll be pushing I didn't even consider it to be an issue.

i've got an act clutch in mine, i don't know what one though.
It's very stretable, harder than stock. It was in the car when i bought it it it works great for me.

Is the act a lighter flywheel? i've been thinking about lightening the drivetrain, does anyone make driveshafts for the mk3?
