Is one really better than the other? The Greddy one is like $260, while the HKS one is like $350.

Any opinions on this?

The way I see it...if you mess up the install it really don't matter which one you get. But that's just my .02 cents.

That only works if you also get TT internals, which utilize lower compression pistons.

You don't really have a choice if you want to go 2mm, as HKS discontinued their 2mm headgaskets a few months ago, which pretty much leaves Greddy... but they are backordered :cry:

Have you considered a 3mm headgasket (Toyo, PHR)?? I think it runs $450, and will lower compression to 8.7:1, I believe.

hks is 360 retail as greddy is 350 retail

can be found for 250-290 depending on the company who has them in stock

the greddy is back ordered, and we have one hks 2jz left in stock 2mm

Its all the same shiet, both 2mm both made for the two companys, im not even sure you could tell the difference...

I think that the HKS has a little extra foreskin on both sides of its gasket that provide a "tighter :roll:" seal?

I'd buy the GReddy one. also how low is too low a compression on the IS300 motor? I am running 8:1 on my VW Motor. what would be a good compression ratio for, lets say 20psi on a 2JZ? :wink:

BTW... I think SRT sells the head gasket upgrade for $500 on their website :lol:

is300soon's got a few HKS 2mm headgaskets for 291...So the HKS isn't as expensive as what was originally listed.

Ya Retail is 370 and hks charges 13 to ship them.

Ouch
