    Which head gasket?

    I am pretty new to all this, so if this is a stupid question, I am sorry. I just changed the cam in my Trans Am, and the stock lifters have started going bad. I am getting ready to replace them and need to know what head gasket to use. I know that I want an MLS set, but what thickness? I pretty much want to stay stock, and if anyone has the GM part number that would be great. Thanks for the help

    IIRC there is only one OEM MLS gasket for an LS1 and it is .054 compressed.
