Where to buy thinner head gaskets

I am new to this forum and was told be another member on the board that you guys are very knowledgeable. I am in the middle of rebuilding my 1990 GT. I am wanting a motor that looks completely stock. I picked up a set of E7's had them ported, milled and all new springs locks and retainers. After and this work was done Kim Barr informed me when I picked them up that I have 66cc chambers. That will drop my compression to just under 8.75/1 and I am wanting to find a head gasket the is around .020 thickness. Can anybody help me out with this thank you.

The thinnest I could find is this .027 by Cometic.
You may have to contact them or another gasket company to get a head gasket that thin.

I found this gasket for a guy on corral but was worried about the copper gasket with no O-rings. The website reports you can run them without them and up to 10psi of boost. The doesn't sound right to me. Thanks 90GTNovi2000 good to be here.

SCE is a well known copper gasket maker. If they claim that you can, then you should be ok.
Spray them with some copper coat to seal any minor irregularities and give them a try.
