I wouldn't be using gasket goo on it. Maybe ACL Holymer or something like that maybe...

I used to use #3 on all decks/heads when i worked in the shop.
But later it proved to be more of a pain if the gasket goes again.

All the std gaskets have some baking agent and don't need additional sealant.
AU's should in theroy solve the head problems.

$398 for a gasket? I knew the NZ dollar wasnt worth much but i didnt think it was that bad ;)

your probably getting quoted on the kit there. The gaskets here are less than $100 im sure
