if mud leaked into the the intake of the motor then it might have reached and went down into the cylinders that can poss. seriously damage a motor.

Do you have a CEL? Why are you changing a head gasket? If you were burning coolant there is a good chance the oxygen sensors are toasted. As for brands if Fel-Pro is a good brand to use.
