I seen a vote for felpro in another post, but I don't see alot of sources for the headgaskets...

Is there a more durable custom HG or anything?

well depending on how long you are willing to wait fel-pro would be the best but here in about three weeks there will be a cometic gasket produced for our car they are supposed to run somewhere around $60.00 a piece but don't quote me any way they are made specifically for high compression motors. i am told that they have been used on 380 cubic in. small blocks producing 2500 hp and are still being re-used up to 5 times so i think i will give them a shot :)

I would have to wait anyways, as I am about to go out of town for a bit...

Does anyone want to make a donation to my gasket fund if I decide to be the guinnea pig?

Maybe I will try a 10% pully with stock exhaust and see if I can blow em :D

Anywyas, thanks for the info! Appreciate it!

Just bought a set of Felpro gaskets and bolts from local Autozone for $150 total. Just need to get them installed now. Gasket set included everything needed to put heads back on and car back together. $103 for gaskets, and $17.99 each for bolt set.
