Fel pro 9333 pt1 is what most use with iron heads. That's just what I have read, I don't have experience with them.......yet. That's what I will be running
Also, I would go ahead and get ARP head studs not bolts

How much boost are you planning to run?

How many miles on your engine now?

Might not be a bad idea to run em as is and change the gaskets and add studs if you blow a HG.

T76 is a little big for a stock motor but you can grow into it. Just hope your Exhaust AR is low.

studs and 9333's are the way to go!

Also 8548 pt-2 head gaskets will work. People run over 10psi on these gaskets with no issues. Keep in mind to use a trusted TQ wrench while installing and TQ to the proper spec. Improper installation of head gaskets is a reason as to why the blow sometimes.

9333pt1 and ARP head studs as well.. 14 PSI. Heads were also milled flat about 5-6 thousands to keep them straight. That helps a lot on iron heads.
