Durapro for sure.

-but a head gasket is only as good as the surface it seals against. So check the head is straight and same with the block.

Its a DURAPRO GRAFLEX head gasket

I ordered mine in from sprints, not the cheapest (you get what you pay for)

My last head gasket leaked from the oil gallery to the head after 30min on a completetly machined block and head, Had no problems with the dura pro gasket.

one from sprints would be a similar price for a VRS set

I like graphite head gaskets as a good everyday solution. I haven't really had much experience with the durapro - I used their cheap and nasty cousin when I was like, 17, and regretted it.
