will regular 3.8 head gaskets fit a sc? i am new here and have mustangs but i am looking at a sc that needs head gaskets. I was looking through my parts pile and found a gasket set for a 3.8. any info would be much apperciated. thanks, lance sedlacek

I would not use an NA gasket on an SC unless it was a late model MLS gasket. The water passages are different. The SC headgasket provides priority cooling to the rear cylinders. It's also made of a different material that tolerates expansion better than a normal 3.8 gasket.
