Which header gasket should I use on my vortec 062 heads??

Hey All,

I recently purchased a set of hedman headers from summit :http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HED-69090
Now I am looking to purchase the right cooper gasket to get the correct seal. The problem is that the exhaust ports are not completly circle or square...so this is why I need help selecting the right fit for the vortec heads. These are the gaskets I have in mind:
So which one should I use for the correct seal??

I just used stock Fel-Pro gaskets on mine and they work just fine, no leaks at all.
