Default Coolant crossover O-Rings???

Is there a cheaper alternative than paying $6.00 a piece for the seals that go under the coolant crossover and rear coolant block off plates. Thats really ridiculous that GM would charge that much for something you can barely see with the naked eye. Does dorman have a cross reference or anything? I have the later style not the gasket type

Didn't know that...I spent the $6 each for them during my head/cam swap and was pretty pissed about it.

+1. Back when I ordered my parts the guy I spoke to said gaskets aren't needed for the LS6 crossover and block-offs. I didn't put any on and have had no issues for the past few years.
