gaskets chevysmallblock

so ive been browsing for cylinder head gaskets for a small block (350,400) and it just seams ridiculous that most places want like $50. is that right or have i not found a good place yet? I have a bunch of rtv but i dont think its a good idea to use that for all the gaskets. i want at least actual head and intake gaskets. any ideas, like where to get good/inexpesive gaskets and what not to ever use rtv on.

Summit racing. 50 bucks for a pair isn't that bad! Gas is nearing 4bucks a gallon, and a tin of skoal is 6.50, a decent new car is 20,000 to 40,000 dollars. Nothing comes cheap any more!

Hi
The last set of head gaskets I bought for a sbc w/alum heads were $100. sbf $86. I try & not think about it.

About as cheap as you will find that is decent is at Competition Products www.competitionproducts.com

Enginetech #ENGC350-1, $29.95, rebuilders complete set for 350 engine, up to 1985.

Enginetech ENGGM400-1, $39.95, rebuilders set for 400 engine 1970-80.

For performance engines I use the ROL Racing #FS31000HP500 for 4.000 bore engines, $49.95, has the correct intake gaskets for use with aluminum intakes and 500hp level head gaskets. They also make a 750hp level gasket set, and sets for 4.125" bore SBC's. Best gaskets I've used for performance engines. ROL Gaskets used to be the good old Detroit Gasket, ROL is the modern name.

If you ask me, Fel-Pro is way overpriced on performance level gaskets.
