    I've never done heads yet so I haven't read too much about this but pretty sure I'd go MLS. Are they Cometic? I think GM even has their own MLS gasket.

    after you clean all the graphite off the block from your stock gaskets you'll know why mls are so much better. That being said, if you don't think you'll have to pull the heads ever again graphite will work just fine.
