Can someone advise what head gaskets would be used utilizing a BGE shortblock and Eagle heads? Is there a difference in the factory headgaskets between the BGE and Apache engines?

I'm wondering what options I would have to help me determine what approx. compression I would have with the BGE and Eagle heads given they are a small chamber than the Apache heads.

Always heard to use the gasket that goes with the block.
The compression is questionable. Im thinking the BGE comp is going to be low due to being a workhorse. No proof and eagle head BGE combo should net 9.5 to one or less?
You can play a bit with compression with gaskets.

The BGE is 10.0 and the eagle heads are a few CC smaller so it should be getting close to 10.5 with factory thickness gaskets, 87 octane range for a new hemi.
