Chevy Copper Head Gaskets Thicknesses

Lets talk about copper head gaskets for a small block Chevy. I was looking through the Summit catalog and noticed that they came in about 3 thicknesses

What would be a good thickness for a street and strip engine that runs on 2 stages of NOS (250HP) and has around 10.5 compression?

Thanks again in advance

Need to calculate quench. Use the proper gasket to get +/- .039 - 040.
