I'm now looking at the ACL Race Series Copper Head Gasket. Got a choice of sizes, 1.0mm (BR520CU10-GTR) or 1.6mm (BR520CU16-GTR). Now the 1.6mm would cause a decrease in my compression ratio I presume (I'm guessing these are for forced induction applications) so I'd be right in thinking I want to 1.0mm as the LPG likes the higher compression ratio?
Retail price on these is like $112.99... :-)

Nah, at my price these ones are a fair bit cheaper and there also metal.
Ended up getting the part number BR520-GTR which is standard thickness.
