I won't do it. I am setting up head clearance and try to keep it as long as possible ( unless ambient parameters have been chnged). If compression goes down it will lose perfomance, by changing compression ratio you can create a lot of mess inside combustion chamber, also on my engines head shim is already .125-.15 mm-no way I will go down.
There is only one way to change head gasket-to compencate wheter conditions.
