Head gasket help

im a new member here. I have a 94 LX and i was wondering what the best headgaskets are? Mine went this week. Is there any procedure to help keep this problem from happening again? The heads are already milled. Your help is appreciated.

fel-pro is the best for your 3.8. Something you can do to prevent this from happening again is to use ARP head studs instead of the OEM replacements. And also to check your coolant level regularly and put in a 180 degree thermostat.

If the heads are milled and the block is decked you could go with the 99+ 4.2L F150 gaskets are another option. However the FelPro's are working pretty good on my 35th.
