I know that for felpro head gasket, that one gasket must be upside down, due to coolant passages, I cant remember what cometic said about theirs, Ive installed the gaskets on my motor already. The gaskets have an arrow stamped into them. and i think i remember them only going on one way, and cometic said that was fine.
Any thoughts?

Arrow pointing toward the front.

If you have any question about correct orientation look at the back of the engine. there will be a radiused bump out where the oil return passes through the gasket.
Front is flatter and wider.

Gasket as it should appear on the passenger side and flipped upside down for drivers. See the flat toward the front?
