au gasket is thinner to increase compression ever so slightly.
And stronger so helps with the old head problem.

well it must have been the valve stems he meant, i will be getting a AU head gasket, for that ever so slight compression boost and for the reason of the standard e series head gasket failing.

So if I was to get a j3 and controller, this would solve the idle hunting and stalling?

if you get a j3 or flash tuner, a custom tune will fix any idle issues,
