I am rebuilding my engine, had to go 40 over on the pistons and purchased a high flow head from Turner. Which head gasket should I purchase. Also do the metal ones have different thicknesses like the composite? I don’t have the engine back from the machine shop yet, so I have yet to measure with the dial gauge. If I do go metal I acquired a Victor Reinz, is that a good brand?

200 Tdi 300 Tdi ? if the deck and head are perfectly flat with no pitting or corrosion then MLS, any warp, pitting or corrosion then go Elring composite both come in multiple thicknesses, and pony up for a new set of head bolts.
Block is original, the head is brand new as mentioned above. It’s a complete rebuild on a 300Tdi, also as mentioned above. Lots of new parts including head bolts.

If you are using a turner head, why don't you get the head gasket they sell? I also got a high-performance head from turner for the 2.8 tdi we are doing and just got a new head gasket they suggested.
I may just do that, as stated above, I haven’t measured the piston height yet since the machine shop isn’t finished yet. I also have 2 head gaskets at the house already. One 3 hole composite and a 2 hole metal.
