Default what head gaskets do i need

i have a set of ls6 heads that are going on my 2000 z28. dont know what year head gaskets to get. i think the guy i bought the heads from said they are 2004 ls6 heads. not sure if they would need a different gasket since they are newer heads. im thinking cometic head gaskets too cause the heads are getting ported at westcoast cylinder heads

look for thinner gaskets to give higher compression

As far as I know the head gaskets are the same, depending on the year of the block the head bolts will be different.

im guessing its the same man, some F bodys came with an LS6 block and they used the same internals.
