The Fel Pro 9333 head gasket is listed as a suitable replacement for all small block Windsor engines. The compressed thickness is listed at 0.047". I am using it with some 3 bar GT-40 heads on a 351w with ARP studs. Because the 351w takes 1/2" studs with a higher torque spec than the 302 or other SBF, should I expect the gasket to compress slightly more than the listed spec?
