Howdy.

I recently had my baby serviced and the mechanics noted that the back right head was weaping. Meaning the head gasket is on it's way out.

Now, as I now have a company card that pays for all fuel, service costs, tyres, etc, etc, so I am going to have the gasket replaced next month, before s**t hits the fan.

I've heard of the JMM triple layer metal head gaskets and I'm going to get them and was wondering if anyone else has them and what they think???

O.K. I've just read the following:

"The compression ratio is also increased to around 9.6:1, primarily thanks to a triple-layer metal head gasket (and note that the extra compression requires that you now fill with premium unleaded at all times)."

Now, as the standard XR motors comression ratio is 9.3:1, does anyone think that there will be ANY sort of noticeable gain in performance?

I use 98 RON BP Ultimate exclusively.
