    Felpro makes a quality product. I would not have a problem with using this gasket

    That doesn't look anything like the gasket on our car -- more of a SBC looking part than LS1 if the representation is accurate. The stock gasket is dead soft aluminum with a neoprene sealing bead.

    i also thought that too jeff...but ive read somewhere that felpro made those as multipiece gaskets and some people use rtv on them to help seal.

    Even with the stock GM gasket, you need to apply a dab of RTV at all four corners in the area where the front and rear engine covers mate with the block.

    Nope. The factory service manual states that the rivets do not need to be reinstalled. You can run a couple of bolts up through the pan and into the gasket to hold it in place as you place the pan in position. The holes in the gasket are small enough to securely hold the bolts.
