head gasket 300 tdi,

Question, what is the difference between a two hole vs a three hole head gasket? Can I use a two hole in place of a three hole?

It's the thickness of the gasket. 1 hole is the thinnest, working up past 2 and 3 before arriving at no holes being the thickest. You are supposed to measure the highest protruding cylinder with the head off, and then once you have found the highest one, you select your gasket:

Protrusion 0.50 to 0.60 mm - select gasket with 1 identification hole.
Protrusion 0.61 to 0.70 mm - select gasket with 2 identification holes.
Protrusion 0.71 to 0.80 mm - select gasket with 3 identification holes.
Protrusion 0.81 to 0.90 mm - select gasket with 0 identification holes.
