    If you choose to not buy the oem one, go with the cheapest one. When you take your car to a shop for them to do a HG, they will use whatever the autoparts store offers them and 9 times out of 10 they get the cheapest one.

    autozone gaskets work just like oem,,just make sure to clean the surface of the block and head really good,and tighten the bolts to spec..you should replace them with arp while your at it but thats your choice.
