head gaskets???

getting ready to change my hg's.Got the arp studs,ordering gasket kit from ford(mother in law works at dealer,big discount)but im torn on what head gaskets to use.i hear the ford gasket is good even with a tuner,then i hear it sucks.i hear black onyx is the way to go,then i hear it sucks.just looking for some feedback.starting the teardown in about 2 weeks and would like to have everything ready. truck is an 05 with mbrp 4'' straight pipe k&n cai,looking to get an edge tuner.no other big power plans,but i do run the crap out of this thing.any thoughts would be appreciated.

Ive installed both factory and black onxy gaskets and i've personally have had better luck with the black gaskets, so I would recommend them. while your into it, put an egr delete on and make sure your heads and block are flat with .002" max warp or you could have return problems later down the road.

It remains plugged in to keep the light off. the valve has a position sensor in it, so with it unplugged you pop P0404 P0405 ect..

How much are these black onyx gaskets?
What is supposed to make them better?
