View Full Version : headgasket woes

hey im going to be buying a new headgasket for my sr build in the next few weeks, and i have some questions about which one i should get. now after reading and searching through a few forums i have read that greddy and cometic have a lot of issues with them leaking. it seems like from what i have read that apexi and tomei are pretty much superior, and also costing about 80-90$'s more. i have seen a few people building motors and have opted to try the cosworth hg that is in the price range of the cometic and greddy gaskets. now my real question is has anybody used this hg for a good amount of time and some input besides the typical "well it looks good" or "well cosworth has been making good parts for xxx amount of years it must be good". also has anybody had any problems with the apexi gaskets?

i've never had a problem with commetic headgaskets.

do not re-use the stock head bolts, buy arp head studs. retorque them after 1500 miles.
