    I didn't know that Cooper Tires made head gaskets... I guess you could pick up 4 for $99 at your local AutoZone and try them out and let us know what you think.

    You must mean "copper" right? Copper is a metal you know. :)

    I just replaced my head gasket a week ago. I went with a Honda OEM head gasket and used a few coats of copper spray on it. I also upgraded to ARP head studs.

    Try it out, see what you think. Pull the head after break-in and re-evaluate. Check your coolant for oil and notice how easily you overheat. Most people use Honda OEM or Cometic.
