Can't hurt. Just be sure to true up the head before replacing the gasket.

No! It will lower the compression. You'll lose about 1/2 a horsepower. On the other hand, you won't have that annoying valve noise anymore!

I had a lot of blowby in a K321 and when the carbon was removed it fixed that issue. There was enough carbon in there to interfere with the piston at the top of it's travel. I don't think carbon is the best way to increase compression ratio. It has some negative effects.
