I see what you mean, there's indeed not much that can be done there in terms of adding material apart from decreasing the bore. But a bigger bore is usually one of the reasons for applying copper gaskets...

Have you used the exhaust gaskets as well? I'm using them on my 96 and I'm very satisfied with the result.

I believe you can't compress copper, only displace it.
