    LS1 Water Pump Gaskets

    I have a 1998 LS1, I'm going to be installing a new cam and the 98 LS1's use the paper water pump gasket, the new timiing gasket kit comes with both the new metal o ring style and the old paper ones. I should be abled to use the newer style metal gaskets right?

    I wonder why they give you both? i have installed cams on 99+ cars and the metal ones are much nicer, you would think they would do a TSB to replace them with the newer better ones....thats what i thought but wanted othes opinions as well. thanks !!
