    Blew my 5m HG. What brand to buy for gasket set?

    So I blew my HG keeping up with the MKIV guys in the Baltimore Ft. McHenry tunnel last wknd. ARGH !!!
    I have two 7m HG's here on hand. One with a complete 7m gasket set from Rock Auto. I think it's Fel-Pro. The other is just a HG from Evergreen. Never heard of them...it was free.

    My question is, what HG set to buy for the 5m? I'm not gonna boost it. Just want it running again, until I can do the 2JZ swap I have.

    I see ITM, DNJ, Fel-Pro and of course Ishino brands.

    And what, if any, other gaskets can I use besides the HG from the Rock Auto 7m kit?

    TIA

    Brian

    They pretty much all suck, go metal. If not, get whichever has the most metal in it. Visually compare them. Look at the seal area around the water jackets and cylinders as that's where they typically go. The best ones have metal on one side that bridges the water jacket to the cylinder walls.

    the Toyota One one is still available, but I'd just do a metal one of you want it to last.
