i have a d16y8 head that was mid to the max .40mm off. i'm going to be using crower stage 2 cams with it and putting it on a stock d16y7 block. i want to know if the valves are going to hit the pistons or not. and if it does hit what headgasket could i use to make it clear if there's one out there. if anyone can help me please let me know thanks.

EDIT: the head was mild .040" not mm.

If it really is only a .015" mill thats nothing really. It will be fine with an OEM gasket.
yes that head is not milled .40 thousands no way, it still has the milling mark, i forget how much you gotta mill before you hit it but i know that head isnt milled 40k

it's actually mild .040". the marks are aligned flat with the bottom of the head. i'll get a picture showing that up later

this might be a stupid idea, but would putting two hg's together work or is that dumb and would pose problems?..like taking 2 oem y7 or y8 gaskets and somehow constructing a 4 layer gasket...i know you can remove a layer to make a 2 layer HG

you can, but i wouldnt reccomend it, waht you do is get a headgasket for a 91 civic they are a little bit thicker, but they arent metal so if you overheat the motor they pop easy, that head isnt shaved 40k ill put money on it

I dont recommend the A6 HG. FJT makes a gasket I am told is a little thicker, so Id go with that one.

So we are sure its .040mm or .040"?

i'm sure it's .040" here are some pictures







if the valves aren't going to hit the pistons if i use a z6 or y8 headgasket then i'm definitely just going to use one of those.
