Since I'm going to have to pull the jug and head off my Kenetic to replace the gasket that didn't seal the first time around, I was wondering is there anything I could do to it to gain any more power from it?

Seems like I read on a Wiki about enlarging the intake port on a carb and possibly the exhaust port but don't think this applies to a Kenetic/Ciao engine.

Someone suggested no using a headgasket to bump the C/R up a bit. As of now I think that is my problem. Because the jug to crankcase gasket is loosing compression. And possibly at the cylinder head since I reused the gasket.

Would it be safe to skim 1mm off the head?

I am going to build a custom exhaust with an expansion chamber once I get the engine running.
