Best gasket kit for 429/460?

Post  tpndrcn on May 12th 2015, 11:13 am

I have bought several different gasket set in the past , but curious to know what you thought would be the best gasket set for a 429/460 BBF that sees mostly street driving but the occasional (5-7 times a year) drag strip. Its a 10:1 motor so not really a high compression motor , but I want gaskets that will last. Was looking at the Ford part# M-6003-A429 , any other ideas? I will need header gaskets that's why i was looking at this set.

Thanks

The FRPP kit is good.

Thanks, Lem Evans, I think I'll go with it unless someone else has better experience for cheaper.

^^^^^^ This. Save money on the shiny parts which don't do anything for you.

Best header gasket I've ever used was ultra high temp silicone

I do use black silicone in addition to header gasketS and agreed it's the only way to go. I got the FRPP kit today ,so now onto the reassembly!
