OEM is the way togo. But if you looking for a little bit better than oem go with either HKS or full copper with oring on the block.

Inline pro gaskets are simply stock gaskets with a thick copper center piece. sealing properties still same as a stock gasket.

Cometic is the only way to go. 800-752-9850 Pick your thickness and pick your bore size...

has anyone stacked two stock headgaskets? I have heard of it being done, I just wonder if anyone has actually run this setup for an extended period of time.

After seeing the price of cometic, I cant believe how much Inline pro charges. $200 is pathetic. cometic was very helpfull and looks very good. Im gonna try them out to see how they work out, but I do prefer stock OEM.
