If you plan on staying under 550HP, factory will be fine. Anything over that or if you just want bulletproof, go with the Victor Reinz.

Most all the responses here and other forums say it really doesn't matter, that using studs and flat surfaces and proper torque procedures are most important and all seem to work equally well. I personally like the idea that the Black Onyx/Victor Reinz are totally coated where the OEM just have a bead around them...my 2 cents
