Default Euro header gasket question

I'm installing the Supersprint Euro headers on my S52 engine and need to order the header to head gaskets.

There are two choices and I don't know if it makes any difference or if one is better than the other.

There is the stock S52 gasket which 2 are required (part 11621744252 - three ports per gasket) and there is the euro style which are individual per port (11621317109 - 6 required).

I just need to get these ordered and I want to order the correct one. Supersprint does not indicate one or the other that I can find.

Thanks,
--Joe

Which side against the head. Side "A"?
Thanks!

Thank you very much! I don't believe I knew the online manual existed.

There are various sites that list the TIS. Always handy when you need a quick search.
