Edelbrock Aluminum intake install?

Edelbrock recommends using RTV in place of the end seals. What kind do you guys use?

I use the common RTV blue glue. A tip if the intake your installing is new. After the first run up the road, after the engine cools check the intake bolt torque, I would do this several times since they will come loose. If your running a small block chevy, I would also install some RVT sealant on the 4 center bolts, as oil will seep up past the threads and make a mess on the intake.

I have used some kind of silicone adhesive on any intake manifold install on the end seals whether it cast-iron or aluminum and never had a problem. Small dabs of silicone will help hold the intake gasket in place also when you install the new manifold.

I just finished an install of an AirGap on my SBC. I used a 1/4 inch bead of UltraBlack in the front and back, I installed my Performer RPM the same way, and never had a problem.

I just installed a performer rpm and used high temp black. You could use just about any color but I would use High temp.

I use Permatex Ultra Gold

You can even use it in lieu of exhaust gaskets.

Permatex Tuff-Stuff. It is expensive ~13-15$ for a can, but it creates a great rubberized gasket.

I always used the gaskets with sealer until I had a rear seal leak resently on my S-10. I would suggest the silicone all the way. I like the red stuff, but any of it will work just fine. It does not get that hot anyhow.
