Mr. Gasket 202A here, as well.  Works great and easy to trim for ported heads and intake.

JMO,

I used Edelbrock 7224 this time after dealing with leaking Felpro. The 1246 S3  are steel shim sandwich but they don't have much crush. They sealed perfectly with the help of the TA31 sealer. They don't come with come with cork end gaskets.

   I have one set of original MR intake gaskets from Ford. If someone is dying for them let me know , we can make a deal .

Mr G 202A
If you happen to go for Fel-Pros use the steel shim version as noted by Keith unless you know you will be taking the intake off annually. You can run the non reinforced ones for short times, (or longer if you are lucky).
When it comes to china wall gaskets I like the Ford diesel sealer, TA-31, instead of a gasket.

     I generally don't like the idea of bashing people or products in formats where the other side is not able to defend their position, nor perhaps should one be forced to do so in a public forum; but, even thou we inventory and sell them, thru my experience, I would not recommend the Fel-Pro "Performance" series intake gasket.      ;)

I agree with the Felpro 1246-7 gaskets. They get oil soaked and leak. The 1246 and 1247 S3 version is fine.  The steel shim version isn't bad for iron. I just didn't like them with my factory aluminum manifold. They don't compress much.

I had to get cometic custom thickness for Bearblock Tunnel wedge and Barry's Felony aluminum heads or have the intake milled, so I went with cometic custom thickness gaskets
