Which one of these head gaskets is better?

Unread post by dom14 » October 8th, 2017, 4:44 pm

Hey guys,

I have below two RB30 head gasket kits in my possession.

Can you suggest which one is better for my Patrol?

I understand neither one of them is genuine but I have to use one of them at this stage.
I'm leaving a genuine head gasket for the next time when I'll be rebuilding the bottom end to prepare for the turbo. So, these seemingly el cheapo head gasket kits are my choice this time.

The ACL one is fairly old by the date printed on it (apparently over twenty years old by the looks of it). I'm not sure whether that matters.

thanks in advance for any of your suggestions (except for any suggestion about using a genuine head gasket :D )
