Must be said that the 11044AA463 is of a much better/tougher quality compared with Cometic.

Yea I completely understand but finding a reputable seller with these isnt all that easy if i could have found then in the us I probably would have picked up a set its very possible
After I get this car fixed I may just sale it and start a new project its been fun but its starting to get old.

im not sure how valid the source is, but according to this ebay listing the part number should be superceeded with the current ej205 head gasket part if it is compatible.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Su...-/270578057990

if it is true, OP might want to ask around his area for used ej205 gaskets just to lay down on the head to verify.

205 gaskets are too short they allow the pistons to hit the head while the engine is cold

Yes the EJ205 gasket is almost half the thickness of the EJ20K gasket so they cannot be used!

Well after 2 companies changing my order to backordered for 3+ weeks I called rallispec expecting to have to wait 3 weeks for the oem gasket but what luck they had 2 in stock so I bought them they were 80 something a piece and 7$ for shipping so go through rallispec the part number is rstr-0062b
