Don't forget you need to compare "compressed height" of the gaskets. If the new gasket is the same brand as the old then the compressed height will be the same.

0.010 shave will obviously lift the CR. Its up to you how far you take it before necessitating running on PULP all the time.

Post some pics of your porting for us? I'm about to attack my first port job and just want to compare with what others are doing and how far it can be taken.

Did you work on:
the transition from the bowl to the short side radius?
cleaning up around the valve stems?

if you're handy with the die grinder its probably worth another couple of hours work blending the short side transitions.

Let us know the results.
