AU head gaskets are better correct? or are all ACL head gaskets the same as AU now? is Genuine better than ACL? can i use a complete AU head set? or only the head gasket? Inlet manifold gasket is the main concern, i think that will match up tho.....?

Cheers.

I'll confirm that.
Seen the difference in size between them.
EL Hybrids and AU's have thinner valve stems, so smaller valve stem seals.

Rocker cover seal is different. They're basically an inverted mould. Took me 3 VRS kits before I realised.. was blaming Ford :P
