v6 question

Hi I have to take the back head off my engine and iv been looking at head gaskets, this sounds like a stupid question but they are stating left and right on the ad's and I'm wondering which I need.

in V6 engines built in traverse:
- rear cylinder row is the 1. cyl row = right
- front cylinder row is the 2. cyl row = left

So you have to rotate the engine in your mind by 90 degree counter clockwise, because originally these engines was built in so (longways + rear wheel drive).

Your question was answered yesterday in your first thread!
Don't just replace one though, do both heads...
