I've used all three brands with great success.  There really isn't a difference material-wise in each brand gasket.  Fitment from better dies seems to be what separates most of them from each other.  Cometic will also do an MLS head gasket, which IMO is a better deal.  I use copper on most of my bored motors, but both of my 750 choppers have the graphite Cometic head gaskets.

Irk, mind expanding on this a bit - what's an MLS gasket, and when you say you use copper do you mean a copper gasket?

MLS = Multi Layered Steel.  There are many that will argue that this is the most superior head gasket.  Copper is copper gasket and some will argue they are superior, while other will say the opposite.  If you anneal copper correctly, it's actually a pretty great gasket and it can used over and over.

And thanks for the hook-up Nybz - I got in touch with genesound over on the other forum and will be ordering just ordered a set of his blue Viton valve seals.  Much obliged  8)

Car's still stuck in the back alley - rigging that ^^ up to the KLR would get me around town in style.  Missus has snow pants so she's got no excuse for not hanging off the back either.

Bummed - head's ready to pick up and the frame could go to powdercoat but until the back alley gets cleared - or I buy a vehicle waaaay more suited to Montreal winters - I'm square-wheeled.

Man, I miss my GTI. I had Conti ProContact all weather's on it and it did great in the snow. Only got stuck once ever, but it was much easier to push out than my truck was  ;D

It's a great car, but it's getting shafted in Montreal.  If I could get some good money out of it I'd probably switch it for a decent all-wheel drive, the Mazda CX3 would do it.  But I'd be perfectly happy with a beater truck too.  It may not have the go of the gti, but all that gets me is speeding tickets anyway.

I love my Yaris, it's almost as big inside as the GTI, half the cost to operate and I got mine for 3500 bucks with 230K Km on it and it now has 344K. After I finish lifting it and putting the AT winter rated 4 season tires on it will plow right through that.  THat being said, I'd love to have a Golf GTI too, if I could afford to operate it.
