do a little searching on here... i just installed black onyx on mine. didnt finish it yet... from what ive seen, the black onyx is just like oem, but with the black gasket material over the whole surface. i liked the thought of that better, and its a little cheaper. theres nothing wrong w/ the oem gasket... just make sure you stud it!

You can get the Victor Reinz (basically the black onyx everyone buys) for $49 a side.

Yup...there the same gaskets. The Victor and Black Onyx are the same when compared side by side. The VR can be bought for $45 a side now with $7 shipping.

Never seen Black Onyx packaging or manufacture info. They just come on cardboard with plastic. For something so great they should at least have a cool box.

so with the Victor Reinz Gaskets. Which ones do i need for a 2006 F250, production date was late 2005. I see 18mm and 20mm dowel sizes (dont know what that means), but i have heard of people buying the wrong ones for their 6.0???
