I would be comfortable with either OEM or Fel-Pro. It's my understanding that the OEM N* headgaskets come with new headbolts and the Fel-pro's don't so if your also studding it it doesn't make economic sense to buy the OEM.I know the general consensus on here is to use Fel-Pro head gaskets instead of OEM and I am just curious why. Is it a quality or cost issue or both?
There are several different sets... the set that I had delivered today (HS26150PT2) is used on the 2000-2001's according to the label on the box. This set is more than just the HG's though.i know that there are 2 generation Gaskets for the N atleast the 98-04 and i think someone told me felpro still uses the original Gen but maybe i miss read that
cool cool good looking out on checking that now we just have to wait for jake to pop up on the boards and see what he has to sayok, so my guy says that he thinks that there might be some slight differences in the gaskets, but he's not sure....
if we really want to nail this down, maybe we should see what jake has to say
I checked in with him to see what he is currently using... he's using Fel-Pro on everything except... he's using OEM for the rear main seal.I thought Jake preferred Fel-Pro. That is what he is selling on his website.
