Are you serious, no one knows how to do this, or has done it themselves?

i wouldn't do it......Do it if you want, but consider the fact that the middle layer has staggered coolant orifices to help evenly cool the head and block.

Why are you wanting to do this, the most you will be able to change compression is around .3 points and that is hardly worth altering you head gasket to acheive.
