Best Engine Gaskets, Head Gaskets

I had a mechanic tell me that he doesn't buy his gaskets from Fisher Auto Part now Federal Auto Parts. Nor does he buy them from Advanced, Pep Boys, or Auto Zone. He told me where he buys them from but they are not a big name and I never heard of them before.

Did anyone ever have problems with gaskets from big name auto supply companies?

What is this the best place to get gaskets?

Big name companies carry most of the same gaskets as everyone else. Federal Mogul/Felpro/National are very big names. Felpro is great for engine gaskets. Head gaskets do offer some options such as SGE and Mr.Gasket. The plus side to Felpro is they make sets, such as head set that will include pretty much every gasket you need to replace the head gasket.

Where you buy them is up to you. The are covered by the same manufactures warranty regardless.
