Let's Play a Game

Ok, since so many people are wondering about the reliability of Black Onyx Head Gaskets compared to OEM I thought something like this should clear things up!


Everyone gets a do-over here

Please everyone think of themselves as a professional technician working on 6ohs...

Let's pretend that I am giving my truck to you for HG work, you will need to provide me with a 5yr/50K warrenty on your HG work covering labor AND parts!


Please don't let your previous HG work on your own truck influence your decisions. (ie: Vote OEM just because you put OEM on your truck or vice versa.)



As much info as you have gathered up to today, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE to install on my truck?

OEM or Black Onyx?




PS: PLEASE do not clutter this thread with arguements

OEM.

The BO gaskets do not appear to have a good track record regardless of how "well" the heads are prepped.
