As said use AU gasket (genuine).
To stop the leak at the front of the head (between head & timing case) use a thick bead of selastic instead of the rubber gasket supplied. Will last far longer.

Don't know their cost but they will fit straight on the E-series engines, they are a bit thinner which will help raise your compression a bit.
