JB Racing Steel lined cylinders

This has been moved from the post remote oil filter. Couple of questions to DonE or anyone else using these cylinders.

These JB Racing cylinders have steel lined innners. Do you use a head gasket with these? I'm wondering about aluminum heads mating with steel and the ramifications.
Also, are these the Mahle cylinders that have been bored out to accept steel liners or are these aluminum castings of another source?

If these are an attractive alternative to Nikkies or Mahle's, I would gladly use them since tearing down the engine every 3 years(20K miles) for inspection is fine with me.
