    Headgasket question

    So i pulled the head on my ski because i was going to send it out to be milled to turn my DF14/20. However the turn around time is longer than i was expecting and since we've having a good weather streak this weekend, i really want to get it running for then.

    So, does it make sense for me to just put it back together as is, or should i try removing 1 layer of the headgasket to get a little more power to turn the dynafly? I have a fuel controller so i figure i could just take out a layer of the headgasket for a few weeks, and then have the head sent out when i can stomach the turn around time.

    I DO NOT recommend 1 layer of head gasket on the 03' + GPR's. I have been down that road and it cost me a cylinder/piston kit. They are very hard to seal,especially if your cylinders do not measure up. My opinion is not to chance it but thats your call. Hope this helps.

    hmmm, you could have thought about that before you took the head off... it`s busy this time of year...

    but, suck it up, send it out and you`ll have a nice grin when you have it back together...

    and get a new head gasket to!
    especially on an 08, don`t be cheap...
