Sinister Diesel and head gaskets

I want to do some mods to my 07 6.0. I am going to go with the "6.0 Powerstroke STAGE 1 Power Package with MKM Complete Solution" from Sinister Diesel.

I have two questions: What size head gaskets do I need to order 18mm or 20mm and will I have to delete codes on my truck after I install this?

The kit includes.

•Complete 4" Turbo back exhaust (no muffler) from MBRP
•S&B Cold Air Intake
•SCT 3000 Programmer with 3 Custom Tunes by MKM Customs
•EGR Delete Kit by Sinister Mfg. Company
•Black Onyx Head Gaskets either 18mm or 20mm by Sinister Mfg. Company

•Black Onyx Exhaust Gaskets

•ARP Head Stud Set
•Ford Factory Oil Cooler Kit
•Ford Factory Oil Cooler Screen
•Ford Factory Intake Gaskets
•Ford Factory Turbo Hardware/O-Ring Kit

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

2006-2007 used the 20mm gaskets. The '07s will set off a CEL for the delete, but MKM should supply you with custom tunes to correct the CEL.

Also, you might want to read up about the black onyx head gaskets, then use your judgement.
