I used black onyx. Works just fine.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

I don't think it really matters much what you pick. Honestly, the reason the stock gasket fails in the first place is due to the junk torque-to-yield head bolts. But ARPs are not going to stretch. The black onyx gaskets have a sealant coating over the entire gasket, so theoretically, they should seal a bit better. But unless you are building a high horsepower engine, I wouldn't expect either one to fail again, unless for some other reason (EGR cooler or oil cooler). That's just my opinion.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

There is evidence of issues with the BO/VR gaskets and some vendors have quit using them.. Stick with the Ford gaskets. If they can hold all the power Shawn Ellerton makes they'll work for you.
