Default Intake Manifold Gasket Brand??

I got a P0301code and started troubleshooting. Long story short I found the Intake Manifold gasket is leaking by spraying TB cleaner on the number 1 cylinder joint. The RPM dropped noticeably. The engine is a DOHC. I have read the SOHC engine are more susceptible to this failure.

Is there any preference on the gasket? I see Rockauto has Fel-Pro, Victor and DNJ. I have had good luck with Fel-Pro, any reason not it use that brand for this application.

Thanks

FelPro was a perfect fit for me, with greater thickness that the OEM gasket allowing better sealing. My FelPro gasket has been installed for a long time without issue.
