WHat is the go-to gasket for Valve covers these days? Specifically 99-00 2V Windsor?

I snagged a set of Fel-pros but the reviews aren't that fantastic. Should I go with Mahle?

Also, are grommets something else that I should also pick up as well?


Noticed my valve cover is leaking a bit. I'm going to be ripping the Dorman intake off shortly to put a PI intake back on and figure I take care of these at the same time.

I typically go for the Mahle gaskets and replace the grommets at the same time. I’ve never had a problem with felpro though. They are just kind of tough to get in the cover and keep in place while installing the cover.

felpros are basically 1 time use in my experience. I can never get them to fit back into a valve cover after they've been used.
