the standard felpro with with a steel ring can dig into the aluminum, the cometics are the best but have been TOLD you need to start with fresh surface on both sides to use them.

Thanks for the info guys. Last season I used the Felpro MLS and didn't see any advantage for the added cost. When I ran this combo years ago I used the Felpro 1003 and never had any issues so I am going to try them again.

If you are asking why I picked the larger runner head I bought them close to 10 years ago and don't remember why? :confused: Actually someone recomended them to me.

It ran okay last season. 10.10 @ 135 with a junk converter. Just picked up the heads from MotorCity Motorsports from getting freshend. Hoping to see some 9sec time slips this year.

Felpro MLS should work good with a aluminum head. I had one on my iron head, and always had coolant seapage
