964 cylinder to head sealing rings: steel or graphite?

I was talking to a mechanic friend of mine and he recommended using the graphite head sealing rings instead of the current steel sealing rings (for 964 motors). I guess he's had the steel ones leak sometimes. Does anyone here have experience with this?

I'm leaning towards the graphite as I haven't prepped the tops of the cylinders and the bottom of the sealing ring groove has imperfections that I don't think the steel rings would comform to as well as the graphite.
