Hey y'all,
I'm noticing 2 different intake gaskets floating around out there. Some have gasket material at the front and back walls, others have none and require a squirt of sealant.

Is one better than the other?

OEM gaskets are usually far better quality than aftermarket ones. I’d rather use the Ford one too but have used Fel-pro and the other brands with success many times. The ones that require a squirt of RTV require the surfaces to be really clean.
