Default Head/Intake Gaskets

Okay guys and gals.. I have a 91 5.0 with Edelbrock Performer RPM heads and Pro Comp intake.. I need to know the best gaskets to use. I'm not sure if stock gaskets will work or not. I honestly don't see the problem with using stock, but I figured I would ask first. Thanks in advance. If you could also tell me why I should go with the option you suggest (just because I want/need to learn).. stock bore

Fel-pro.
Measure the size of the intake ports as they make several differing sized intake gaskets.

Okay. I have a question on pushrod length.. I have an x303 cam, P2482F-STD probe pistons, and stock roller lifters, and using the RPM Performers.. So, what length should I be using? I know the stock length is 6.25 or something along those lines..

I was unaware that stock 5.0 came with roller rockers , unless it was a cobra.

felpro 1250 for the lower intake and you need to measure for push rod length, no way around it
