Default Ej251 6psi wastegate

Hey all, been on the forum for a while now building a low buck boosted car. Have an ej251 6psi wastegate running peak at 10psi.

Custom tmic, boost ref fuel pressure regulator at 40 psi vacuum, 50-55 psi on boost, walbro 255 pump, 1 step colder plugs, and 5.1v diode mod.

Built to hopefully last but the head gasket failed pretty good today. I was wondering if a MLS head gasket alone will hopefully help it last a little while, maybe gap the rings while I'm in there?

Trying to see what other people, if any, have done lately to make a half reliable boosted 251. I've used search of course but nothing on what other peoples working setups have been. Would love to see what I could change or do while the engines out to have a few extra ponies on the low.
