Message:
Do you use RTV or any type of sealant of the intake gaskets? I am installing my M1 and I have the gaskets that come with the Mopar kit. They look like graphite gaskets, and someone said I needed to use RTV as well. Is this true? Where do I need to use RTV/ silicone throughout the entire installation? I expected to use it on the front and rear rubber gaskets, but may be wrong. Anyone with installation experience please answer. Thanks in advance.

I have had the stock intakes off many times. I only put silicone on the corners where the gaskets meet. Haven't had a leak yet.

Yep

If you use to much RTV or put it in the wrong areas it will do more harm then good.
