95 4.0L intake gaskets

I need to replace my intake gasket(s). I have heard bad things about the felpro intake gaskets. I heard that they are cork instead of rubber. The only other gasket I can find is Victor gaskets. They do not list a material however.

What gasket should I get and where can I get it? What material also?

Also. I have it torn down right now. I am just thinking is it worth it to take the heads off and replace the head gasket as well?

I usually go by the "if it ain't broke don't fix it rule" but since I am already this far I was wondering whether it was worth the extra cash my own labor to replace the head gasket.

Thanks

The main thing I need is the upper and lower intake gaskets. Are the Victor gaskets cork or rubber?

I have heard bad thing about the cork.

Thanks
