Cometic makes thinner or thicker head gaskets. A thinner head gasket would give you some HP if you're NA. Head gaskets don't really break on these motors without reason though...

The heads might be okay if the valves just tapped the pistons. At the minimum, you will need to remove the heads, swap out the valves, and lap in the new valves. If the pistons aren't trashed, they can be reused.
