Default single layer head gasket for B16A2 - too thin?

Are any of you using one or know someone who is/has? With mild cams like the Toda A spec / Skunk2 stage 1 i shouldnt have any problems should i?

I have a D16 with a stage 2 camshaft and (thinner) head gasket from Cometic. Not sure if that is what you can compare your situation to or not, but I have not had any issues yet.

A thinner head gasket would help because it will SLIGHTLY raise the compression. I couldnt see it being a problem unless it went so low you hit a valve.
