It's the compatibility that threw me off. I do have the non metal gasket, it's not paper, kinda plastic like but more flexible.

I would use gaskets. I didn’t really start getting lazy until I needed garlocs and then I would just use rtv. But even now I use garloc and right stuff. But I also take my engine apart a lot each year and sometimes I change things up
Everything on my car is either right stuff or gasket and right stuff.

Remember to remove any rags or towels from the valley before re-installing the LIM.

What about the two coolant passages on the bottom of SC inlet? TB adapter plate blocks it off but that would probably leak, no? One option is to block off the two holes on the lower intake but I came across an old discussion by master James saying it is not a good idea because of coolant flow restriction.

 

Also do i need any rtv around the red outline on the top of the gasket? Any rtv on the bottom of the gasket? I know these questions might sound brutal to some, it's my first time  lol :oops:

I answered my coolant flow question with this thread from GM forum post #9. Now I know what @tippietoejoe was talking about with opening the coolant passage at the end of the lower intake. Good stuff. I'll just tap and plug the two LIM coolant holes and dremel out the rear end.

Any info on the sc gasket and rtv? Lol, no worries - more stupid questions will be asked I'm sure.
