And make sure your using brown seals and not black...
Brown ones will be marked NTN, NSK....blacks are generic, and will leak right out the gate sometimes.

We use the 6 Star MLS headgaskets on almost all the 2.5 SOHC engines we do. Screw those OEM single layer gaskets, they'll fail faster then you can shake a stick at.
I have been hearing good things about those, so is that the way to go now?

I had .004" taken off of this one, got rid of all but about a dime sized spot around the small center coolant port. Thought I had an after pic but can't find it.
At the top of the pic you can see the burnout where compression was blowing past the fire ring. That was gone after the first pass at .002"
