ANY updates Black Diamond HG??

I've read the forums, read the PR propaganda, read what varying engine rebuilders recommend, etc etc. Most of this stuff is 2-3 years old. Does anyone have any additional info on the VR Black Diamond (not Black Onyx) head gaskets? I have read sites in which people claim to have gotten them from the Ford dealer when they ordered OEM. I have done research and found that the VR part number for these is 54450A which directly correlates to Ford part number 4C3Z6051EA which is OEM head gasket. So now I don't know wtf to believe! lol

So....anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I put them in my truck 1000 miles ago. They are EXACTLY the same as the OEM gasket, minus the color of the sealant.

No first hand experience, but I believe the side that says they're exactly the same. Ford doesn't make head gaskets. Navistar doesn't either. Mahle does.

Yeah, they claim to be the same thing just with a different color sealant essentially. I'm still not sure I need em yet. Going to start another thread on a new issue that popped up with regards to my cooling system pressure.
