    I was going to use the set on the bottom of the page, my question is if i use thinner head gaskets would i gain more power cause of higher compression and would i need different pushrods?

    I wouldnt be so concerned with finding "thinner" gaskets, Not a good idea, although while you have your valvetrain pulled apart its a good idea to upgrade all components. Including the Pushrods, somewhat of a weak spot in our motors.

    I used those same head gaskets, no problem. I agree with sunset, just use the stock thickness and make sure you upgrade your valvetrain. If you plan on running a cam in the future, now is the time to use some good springs with the heads off.

    I heads i have came with yellow valve springs, so those should work till .580. I was going to run a mild cam with prob about .568 lift. What pushrods are needed, I was thinking 7.4?
