    I haven't tried Mr. Gasket,,,but the copper gaskets I use tells you to put the flat side to the head and the raised portion facing the headers.

    Yes it does have a control solenoid for the A.I.R.,,,,on my 97 it's mounted up on the passenger side intake. Not sure about the earlier years. Your vacuum diagram under the hood should lead you to it.
