The stock gaskets are fine. Shawn Ellerton (the 6.0 with 1004hp) was running stock gaskets with ARP studs I do believe

But if you are paying for the gaskets out of pocket, definitely go for the black onyx gaskets, since they seal better and run a little cheaper!

But as you may have read before, its not the head gaskets problem for blowing, they are fine, it is just the sucky head bolts that hold them together!
