I was looking at buying a set of head gaskets. Mine arn't blown, but it would be nice to have them in the garage if they ever do...I was looking on Fel-Pro's site and found this http://www.pickproparts.com/PartsList.aspx?AAIASubCategoryID=5416 Is this all I would need to change them? Thanks

Oh, and has anyone used these? How good are they? Should they blow ever again? Thanks

If you look closely those are not for an SC

Then can someone give me the Fel-Pro part number for our cars? Mine is a 89 SC, if that makes any difference.

Can anyone give me a link to a set of gaskets for my 89 SC from Fel-Pro, or any other known good gasket company please? Are there any kits that come with the head bolts and stuff? If not how many do I need? Thanks for any help
