What wrong with simply "decking" the gasket surface like we would in the "old days?" I get upset with parts exchangers instead of mechanics!
Yes, I'm an old guy.
no their replacing it because its bent, when the two front bolts broke, nothing retain the manifold to the head so with the high temps and pressure the manifold bent a little so with the new bolt s it would not go flat on the heads and woulnd seal proprelly

hope this helps
