Mx6 gt f2t mls head gasket companies

Hey everyone, My head-gasket went and I am wondering if there are any stronger gaskets out there either than a stock oem replacement. I have located two companies that can offer a better replacement gasket. The first is COMETIC Gaskets, now they can offer me a replacement stock one that's just a fiber composite. The second is from Fel-pro which is there 9572 PT head gasket. Here is a link to check out felpro's unit.

Federal-Mogul Resource Center - Part Details

Now both are around the sixty price range. I don't really care how much it costs, I just want to run more than 14psi without worrying about the head gasket. The Fel-Pro unit if u click on the spec's it shows you that the gasket is constructed with not only a steel ring like many others, but the outter material consists of a solid steel construction along with a composite fiber and a matting silicone.

Any one know of a company still constructing Performance gaskets for this vehicle? either a copper or Multi layered steel gasket?

I've only used Fel-Pro OEM replacement and I never had a problem. I was also pushing 20+ psi with my an HE351 holset.

Ive ran 20+ through the stock OEM one on a few different cars and never had an issue. A set of ARP head bolts would do more as protection IMO.

My GT has a built motor with forged internals, and its equiped with a set of arp head studs, but all I have is an oem head gasket. my set-up includes a 60-1 t3/t4 which as you know is quite a significant size turbo.

Any one here of stacking the gaskets? I heard some jimmy jammer from honda guys that have stacked oem gaskets, anyone try this?

my holset was much larger than a 60 trim T4 wheel. Get the felpro and be done with it. Besides, it's always cheaper to replace a headgasket than something internal.
