If there is somewhere to save money, HEAD GASKETS AINT ONE OF EM!

I would suggest an MLS Cometic pair of gaskets, they last pretty much forever. Not the cheapest, but IMO the best.

are you machining your head or anything like that? are you looking to maintain your stock compression ratio?

Then you should go with stock thickness! I'm not sure what that is! But anything thicker would lower your compression ratio and you'd have less power, and the ability to run more boooooost! (making more power), but it doesn't look like that suits your situation!
