Do not use 96 25D heads on a 205. The 25D head chambers are bigger than the 205 bore. The 97-99 25D heads may be a more direct fit but you'd have to place 205 gaskets on them to make sure that the chambers are within the bore.
These are 22e MLS head gaskets on the 97-99 25D heads.
Note how the chambers are enclosed within the bore with a little extra space.
