    255 Head Gasket Options

    So I've read about use of the 300 head gaskets on the older engines. I've also seen the Riva Pro-Series gaskets that are available. Compared to OEM, are either of those options a "better" option?

    I'm considering going with head studs as well if that makes any difference.

    Speaking of studs, what is the latest info on availability for those? I've seen some sites showing December ship date. I thought I read October elsewhere

    Riva pro head gasket is the same as the ccometic and from my experience and others it’s junk. Do oem 260 or 300 gasket.
