Ok im planning a future engine rebuild for me EA82T. How should i go about this. suggestions on head gaskets. Ive heard of people using gold head gaskets i think it was. Also i wanna put in higher compression pistons. im only looking for like an 8.0:1 ratio. are there any shops that sell them? Suggestions please!!!!

By "gold" headgaskets, i am sure you are refering to "copper" headgaskets....they are pretty spendy from what i have heard.

I have also heard that it is better for a turbo engine to have lower compression and higher boost than high compression and lower boost.

hope that helps

yea you may be right about the copper i just remember hearing that once.

Anyway, so you think the stock pistons will do the job with boosts around 13psi?

DUDE... there have been two or three Very impressively documented (with pictures even) recent rebuilds in here....... the threads are during the last 6 months and all 3 or 4 have at least 15 replies to them.....(conservative estimate) just a suggestion yo! (gives a thumbs up just like "buddy christ"
