Default Head gasket

Anyone have any useful information on the Felpro headgasket vs. the "new" MLS gasket available from the dealer? 1998 DOHC non-turbo

The OEM MLS gasket will cure any headgasket oil leaks that the 420A is famous for- it too em long enough to come out with the MLS (having other headgasket revisions that still leaked oil)- but they finally came around. If you decide to use the OE MLS head gasket, be sure you follow the revised torque specs that are included in the packaging for this particular gasket.
