    Hi guys. I ordered the oem head gaskets from Toyota. I need to make sure they are the updated ones, because my parts guy said the system had 4 different numbers...ie left and right side.

    I just want to cover my bases and confirm with you guys. Also, does anybody have the part number for the correct FelPro kit? I also need head bolts.
    05 with...4.0.
    Thank guys.

    So I ordered the FelPro head gasket kit. Also bought a set of Toyota OEM head gaskets. However still not sure which direction to go.

    I'll post pics tomorrow, but the FP head gaskets are thicker and 3 ply with a stainless steel layer sandwiched in between. Not sure if this is in case the heads need machining or not.

    Any ideas?

    Honestly never had to do it, so I wont try to give information I dont have. However I definitely have read about others doing the work, if not here there are threads on toyota120 or tacomaworld. T4R.org stopped being useful a few years ago
