Which headgaskets do I need

I am about to put studs in my truck, and I bought a set of head gaskets. I am pretty sure I got the ones for the 18mm dowel size. My truck has a build date of 02/06. Is this the right ones or do I need the ones with the 20mm dowel size? Also cold the 18mm be made to fit on the 20mm if that is the one that I need? Thanks

I didn't realize there were different sizes. Did you get them from Ford? Are you under warranty?

I am under warranty but I am having my mechanic do it. I am putting a regulated return egr delete and studs in. There are no dealers around here that will do what I want. My mechanic is doing it for $900, but I have to have all the parts. He is doing it that cheap because he just opened his own shop and he needed a lift and told me that if I bought one he would do the labor for free. And I found a great deal on a used 10k lb lift for $900. I bought the gaskets off of ebay, before I found out that there were two different sizes.

Seems like a good deal. What brand are the gaskets?

They are motorcraft gaskets.The part number is 4C3Z-6051-EA , so I know they are for 18mm dowels but I have no idea how to find out what my truck has. They changed in 06 but I don't know which one I have. On all the charts they are pretty vague so IDK.

Call Ford parts and give them your VIN#. They can give you the part number from that.

I don't think so. Oasis is all they can run and that tells you what service work has been done. I have a friend that is a Ford parts guy that I can check with tomorrow but would probably be tomorrow afternoon.
