Compression using Lsa head gaskets

Would anyone happen to know what the compression ratio would be using Lsa head gaskets on a Ls3 motor?

Same compression ratio. Gasket thickness is same.

Thanks Matt, almost got everything together just waiting on the ADM pump and control module. Hopfuly next week I will begin installing that killer kit I got from you. So is advisable to use the LSa head gaskets?

Should I replace the oil in the head unit after a certain time of initially running it? And how soon thereafter?

Nothing to see here people.. Move along...

Honestly bud we use the 6.2L gaskets 12610046 for all of our combinations with stock bottom ends when we are changing out lifters and such. Most of our combos we don't lift the heads unless we're removing DOD

I'd use the LS9 gasket, it's the best one GM has to offer. Granted, I know nothing about the LSA gasket, I just get the LS9 one.
