Head Gasket?

I will be replacing my head gaskets and is a Mahle a better head gasket or not any better than a updated GM Head Gasket?

Hey Brent, I bought all my stuff for a headgasket job from you guys and at the time you recommended the GM headgaskets. Has the situation changed that the GM gaskets are no good now? Please explain.

No issues with GM gaskets, but we have been using more and more of the Mahle units here with great results.

Brent I am in the process of ordering a head gasket kit /ARP studs and upgraded head gaskets. I see that one of your competitors offer a head gasket kit for $1095 but they include turbo gaskets, valve seals, valve cover gaskets etc. It looks as if your gasket kits does not include these, do you offer a comparable kit?
