Default Which head gaskets with 13 psi?

Wondering if anyone has used Fel-Pro 1016 head gaskets? My blue Fel-Pro Perma-Torques finally let go since built in 2013. Most people recommend cometic, which are twice the price of the Fel-Pro 1016. Thanks in advance

400 .060
9:1 compression
#12 heads w/ARP studs
91 pump gas
50/50 meth injection
Altitude 5200
Density Altidtude varies 6500 - 8800
Usually boost gets to 12-13 psi after 1-2 shift

I had them in my first 455 turbo build, it failed, went with cometics never looked back. even re use them when the heads came on and off for warranty work.

I don't know much about this boost stuff but Cometics will do you fine for anything under 20lbs.
