Go with Black Onyx. They are some of the best other than fire ringing it.

They arent techinically black onxy gaskets, they are Victor Reins gaskets which I currently run after my build. The difference between the stock and these are the coatings on the gasket. Also dont worry about fire ringing them, Elite wont do this anymore, if they are not done correctly your kinda screwed. A set of ARP's and VR gaskets and be done with it.
