Got a question about my deck height and if it will work.
A fallow engine builder is telling me if you have any negative deck height youll be blowing head gaskets ever pass down the drag strip on a D series.

But iv ran -0.022 before with out issue on basically the same build.
Using standard length rods with compression down 8.4

On this engine iv got -0.086, is it true the headgaskets going to be seriously compromised?
Compression is coming in around 9.6 but should be slightly lower since CC the cleanest of the chambers off a head that just been pulled with 200,000KM on it.


Details of engine.
D15b vtec JDM engine.
138.62mm P2P0 rods
YCP Vitaras


On to my clearances.
