    Oh ya I am new to this all aluminum motor and I always installed head gaskets with nothing. I have read that there is a copper spray that is recommended but after looking at the gasket I really disagree with that .

    A composite Head Gasket will work just fine as long as your not running boost. Also dont re-use your stock head bolts, pick up some new ones and ensure you bolt holes are clean and debris free... Copper Gaskets are awsome for nitro cars and High Hp cars...
