Need head Gaskets

Can some one recommend a set of head gaskets with a .028 to .033 (or so) compressed thickness for a 355 chevy. I posted a while back about the GM composition gaskets but Double-v23 says they actually compress to .021" Thats a little tight, pistons are .012/13 in the hole.

I've been on summit and CP's websites. Also where do you guys buy your Dykem?

Victor makes a nice head gasket that is .026 compressed. I have used it on a couple of builds with no problems.

I used to buy them at the local NAPA store but they have recently switched to Felpro.

Clevite makes them, they are part number 5746. They have a 4.1" bore.
