1.) Is this part sold as just one individual head gasket, or is this sold as a pair of head gaskets? 2.) What is the difference/benefit of the severe duty (511SD) head gaskets over the standard duty (9957PT) head gaskets? 3.) Does Fel-Pro offer a complete head gasket kit with the Severe Duty head gaskets included instead of only the Standard Duty (HS9957PT-2) head gaskets? ... if so, what is the part number of the severe duty kit and is Advance Auto Parts able to sell it?

Info on severe duty head gaskets at mfr website: http://www.federalmogul.com/en/AftermarketSolutions/NorthAmerica/SealingSolutions/Products/EngineRepair/Fel-ProHeadGaskets/PermatorqueSD/
AAP offers (now, 3/31/12) offers a Head Installation Set, P/N HIS 5597 PT-2, which includes the severe duty head gasket. I've spent most of the day researching this.

The head gasket is sold separately, the difference between them is sever duty is a more durable material that can handle higher temperatures. Unfortunately the severe duty does not come in gasket kit. Hope this helps
