Hypermax head gaskets?

Hypermax - Product Display


Curious if anybody has used these gaskets and how they’ve held up good or bad. I know a lot of people are sticking with the Ford stock gaskets. The shop I’m thinking of doing my head gaskets is a pretty reputable diesel performance shop in my area and they use the Hypermax gaskets and swear by them, claims they’ve done over a 100 head gasket installs with not a problem.
Any good, bad or ugly experiences from personal experience out there on the Hypermax gaskets?

They're good gaskets, just expensive. OEM gaskets do a good job and are cheap by comparison.

Agreed they are more expensive, but not as expensive doing it twice.

I'm confused, on their website it says if you run over 550 hp they will blow. Aren't there many guys on here running over that to the wheels? What gaskets are you using?

Humm... It looks like they are more expensive than Ford gaskets, so why would anyone buy these?
