    Shaving a cylinder head will increase your compression ratio but it will cause your cam timing to be retarded.

    I do not recommend milling a head more then 20 thousands. I have heard of people milling their heads up to 40 thousands etc..

    You will need cam gears to compensate for the timing adjustment you will see when you mill your head.
