As bad as I hate to say it, most failures of any type with ANY head gasket is related to installer error if it's not a factory set. So MANY dealers and Aftermarket shops are not prepping the block and head surfaces within tolerance and are also torquing heads to factory specs which is not what the ARP specs are. Shoot us a PM if you have anymore questions, even though you didn't buy from us were still willing to help!

The dealer here won't even install anything except OEM head gaskets. Several of the Black Onyx gaskets that were used in past installations failed and now they won't install them. So far, none of the OEM gaskets have failed. Good advice on getting the heads checked out! And yep- Performance Machine Mfg are GOOD people!! Good luck with it!

If you think saving up for oem gaskets is bad, make sure you dont scratch the blue surface or you'll be buy them again like me.
