    I have a jdm b16 sir2. It has a 10.4 CR is that too high for boost? I was thinking getting a thicker headgasket to lower the cr. Is it safe to do that? and how much will it drop?

    Dont get a thicker head gasket. You cant just slap it on, youll need to mess with other stuff.

    Anyways, that CR is fine, boost away and have fun.

    ps: Youre going to hear a lot of retards telling you to get a thicker HG, but thats probably all they know.
