Wondering what head gaskets to go with? OEM stock or aftermarket (fel-pro)... the heads have not been o-ringed. Any suggestions would be helpful... Thanks
 
I've been using the Fel Pro 9441PT with good luck.I typically do the headgaskets over the winter weather they blow or not.I've got 87 passes in the 10's on my current set and counting(knocks on wood :D )

Thanks :) not to overtake this thread but I'll give a quick rundown:

Stock block w/4 steel caps and girdle(I know,it's suppoesed to be overkill but I figure more is better in this area)
Stock crank and rods with JE Pistons
214/210 roller cam
TTA heads with mild porting and intake port matched
65mm throttle body with Precision plenum and RJC power plate
Stock TTA headers
TE64-1 turbo
55# injectors
CAS V2 front mount
Modified stock ECM with Jim Testa chips
TH400 trans with Precision non lockup converter and Hughes brake
Moser 12 bolt rear with 3.08 gears,eaton posi,and 33 spline axles
26x11.5x16 ET Streets on stock GTA wheels

My biggest changes for next year are going to be 3.42 gears and converting to a lockup converter.I hope to pick up as much as 5-8mph with these changes and a little more tweaking of the chips.
