Default Head Gasket

i have a 01 rs with 63k on it and my head gasket is just starting to go, i have plenty of time to fix it but i would like to replace it with a better quality gasket. I don't want to change the compresion ratio at all, it will have a turbo in it by July but i am going to tune the car and get it running good on low boost with stock internals first then pull the motor and do internal mods. so i want a head gasket that can take maybe 4 or 5 pounds of boost. does anyone know where i can get these gaskets and how much they are.

THANX,
Bryan

From what I understand a stock RS motor can with stand 5 lbs. of boost reliably. I wouldn't go any higher but allot of people run 5 lbs. for a long time. I would ask in the Aftermarket Forced Induction forum.
