    Default Sbc 383 stroker help....

    Iam building a stroker engine and need advice on head gaskets. Here is what I have

    sbc bored to 4.030
    scat stroker crank 1pc.rms 3.75 stroke
    5.7 h beam rods arp cap screws
    probe -10 cc pistons
    .00 deck height
    64cc chamber aluminum procomp heads that where fully gone through by shop
    comp cams extreme marine 270 cam
    through the hull exhaust.
    affordable injection mpfi with o2 sensors
    alpha 1 gen 2 1:47 with a 15 x25 four blade ss prop

    my question is what head gaskets to run for good compression and still be able to run pump gas. I did a compression calc. And it's saying it will be like 11:1 with .040 gaskets and I was thinking that that is to much. I just don't know. So I need help to pick the bore and thickness for what iam running. Thx

    Gonna be tuff , will have to run low boost , don't know if you could find a head gasket with a large enough CC volume to make a significant change to bring the comp low enough
