Default Lower Compression

would a thicker head gasket lower compression? and also, does anyone know of anywhere that will make a custom head gasket that thick?

cosmetic might be able to make custom gaskets in different thicknesses. Yes a thicker head gasket will lower your comp depending on how thick
