Like Ryan said more detonation than anything. You will shrink your quench area. You would be better off milling the heads.

My daily driver has 16 cylinders and 4400hp @ 1000 rpm....

Running a thinner head gasket wont increase compression anywhere near enough to see any gain in power. Put aside the fact it would cause detonation.. thats a pointless argument. The reality is, it wont provide any power. Changing your heads, and piston combination.. to increase compression the right way.. is the only way.
