Head gaskets

I’m rebuilding my 351W engine and I am looking for recommendations on head gaskets. The block is being bored .030” over and I will be running aluminum heads. My piston manufacturer recommends a .041” compressed thickness to get me to 10.2:1 a compression ratio. It looks like Felpro 1156-1 matches my requirements. Am I overlooking something why these wouldn’t work? Would there be other recommendations that would be a better fit?


Always on vacation!
I used Felpro on my old truck I had. The new owner is a friend. The truck is still five years later still running strong.

Any major brand will do the trick unless its a racing engine.
How much power does it make ?
