what head gaskets

I am looking for input on what head gaskets to run that may hold up better under boost. I am running a 306, single setup with about 9:1 compression, may go to a thicker gasket to help with compression, however I know the gasket thickness isnt going to make a whole lot of difference. Please let me know what you are running. Thanks!

Be careful using those extra thick H/G's
can cause problems, has to do with quench area and
flame propagation. Some people get away with it
some have all kinds of detonation problems.

I agree with the cometics....That's what I use on my turbo car....BUT, you must do the following in order to be successful with the cometics: the deck surface on the block and heads MUST be true....If you have a good forged piston, head studs, and have a true deck on the block and heads, then go with the cometics....Just my .02
