best adhesive on intake manifold gasket???

I'm installing a new intake manifold on my 350 chevy, the felpro gasket which already has a silicone bead around all the ports on one side of the gasket, states you can put adhisive or thin layer of RTV on the block side of the gasket to hold it in place. I'm going to put RTV around the water ports but I would like to use adhesive on the rest of the gasket to hold it to the block, thing is I can't find any info on what type of adhesive that would be. I have some contact cement but that just does'nt feel right... Felpro supplies cork end gaskets with self adhesive ( the old style was rubber and I understand they could leak) I've read a 1/4" silicone bead is better. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Lance
