Default Which Head Gasket?

I'm in the process of selecting parts for my d16a6 rebuild and I need a head gasket. My block is now 75.5 bore. Do I get a 76mm head gasket or 75.5? Also, I want to go thin as possible for compression purposes. Suggestions?

you can use a factory HG even if the engine is bored .5mm larger than stock.

Just to make sure I got this right, are you saying I use a 75mm head gasket on a 75.5 bore?
Do you guys not recommend an even thinner comectic head gasket?

Have you measured the bore on a stock HG?

I didn't think so.

No I have never measured the bore on a Japanese head gasket or any others. Never needed to. I have built many Mopar's and some Chevy's and a builder always goes with a larger bore head gasket with over bored cylinders with domestic so I just wanted to be clear on this with the Honda. Stock head gasket it is with 1/2 mm over bore. The color code thing with the bearings is another that hasn't sunk in but I will figure it out.

OEM Y8 HG as transzex said.

The gasket WILL work with 75.5mm bore.
