V/R has a bit of a bad rep. with the 6.0 head gaskets. They are aware of this and thus the new gaskets. Victor Reinz is one of the worlds largest aftermarket companies for sealing solutions. The new gaskets look very similar to the OEM FOMOCO gaskets.

Any update on this?
I just got my new longblock from Blackwater engines and it has these gaskets when I specifically told them I wanted OEM gaskets.

I have been running them on our Operation Blackout project truck since these gaskets become available. Flawless to date. I have also sold approx. two hundred sets and no returns...nothing but good news thus far. It is my understanding that V/R makes these for Ford and at some point, the Ford OEM gaskets will be these exact gaskets because the black coating on these is an update to the blue coating on the OE gaskets.

Just read your post over on FTE.

For those not on that site, his new head gaskets blew already.

Thanks, but I'll stick with OEM.

Yep leaking from the start.
Truck is stock - No Tuner.
Egr deleted
Brand new Oil Cooler

I think a big part of the problem though is that Blackwater coats their head gaskets in copper gasket spray. This no only defeats the supposedly better engineered "Black Diamond" coating on these Victor Reinz gaskets, but adds an additional thickness and inconsistent layer that has to then be compressed by the head studs. Any spec of sand, a blob of hard spray, even a hair getting stuck in the goop will compromise the chance of a good seal that much further. Modern head gaskets are engineered to be installed dry.

I'm looking for testimony from people with first hand experience on this gasket spray issue, as any warranty claim is going to depend on proving that the spay should never be used on a 6.0l head gasket. Anyone who works in the industry or installs/replaces gaskets regularly.

Head gaskets....too many choices..

I have my 2005 6.0 motor completely taken apart at 108,000 mi and have ordered reman heads(mine were both cracked). I got the Victor Reinz complete gasket set that included head gaskets because I had heard that Victor made the stock gaskets for Ford. I am basicly going to run stock except for the usual longevity mods, ARP studs, MBRP 4" turbo back, EGR delete, Oil cooler, coolant filter etc..In other words, I am not going to run extra boost, just the normal 18 to 20 psi max. Should I buy different head gaskets?The only difference I can see between the Victors and Ford is one is blue and one is black. Has anyone here had any problem with the regular Victors? Thanks!
