I used the HP Fel Pro head gasket for Aluminum heads, I believe the number is #1010. They were the same number as when I ran these heads last year. I was not sure about gauge accuracy since both my stock guage and my Autometer senders are in the thermostat housing and both read different most of the time. The stock one reads the "nicest". I just replaced the stat with a new hi flow one. Did not change a thing. Its really weird, I have had heating problems before, but normally you can track it to human error. So far I have replaced the pump, rad, stat and went back to a flex fan and shroud! Runs cooler, but still too hot.
