I feel the felpro stuff is over priced, and I want to find a dependable brand other than felpro but it's all every parts store carries around here. One place can offer a KP head gasket but I have never heard of it. I need to know what head gaskets are dependable based on your experience and where the hell I can get one.

Have you looked at the genuine Suzuki APV MLS gasket? Fits the G13 and good for higher compression engines.

I can get you the mls headgasket for the apv from the suzuki dealer here.
I bought mine there for my turbo engine. I think it was around US$105,-.

Levon, In my honest opinion I would stay with a brand name that is well known... Suzuki and Felpro make excellent head gaskets. I have used felpro in multiple gt builds and only ever had one blow and it was my own fault. Also have heard very good things about the genuine suzuki oem ones. We spend too much on engine builds to just cheap out on one of the most important gaskets. This is especially important with you since your running high compression, some may also recommend a copper gasket for high comp applications. If you want a cheap head gasket I have multiple ones that I refuse to use due to the fact they are not brand name! Just my 2 cents!

How is Felpro overpriced? You would rather save $20 and have to replace the head-gasket every 6 months.
