    Just make sure it is for a "Magnum" engine not an early LA. When a buddy told me "just the LA gaskets you have" they sprung a water leak in 2 weeks! Not enough material at the rear water port in my case.

    I don't care for the china wall gaskets. Some "Great Stuff" is better IMO.

    Those rubber gaskets are ok if you are running all factory, non machined components, but I wouldn't trust them to be adequate if any variation existed.

    Keep in mind, most of us didn’t/don’t use the front rear rubber gaskets

    For other engines I have built, I use black RTV on both end. I would run a thick bead, gently set the intake straight down and start all the bolts hand tight, then let sit for hour, then torque it down. They never leaked. I heard, "The Right Stuff" works well.
