Is there any chance that anti corrosion crap will ruin the engine oil? Especially during flat tappet cam break in (yes I have moly paste and ZDDPlus).

Also I put the head gasket on there using minor torque on the bolts. It is a Victor Reinz graphite gasket and it left some minor residue on the head and block. I am wondering if I should wipe it off before reinstalling, or if the gasket is toast at this point. I can take pics if needed.

Here is the gasket I am using (says Clevite, but the package says Victor Reinz):

Which BTW look EXACTLY like the ubiquitous GMMP gaskets (although these are .028" and supposedly for 4.000" bores only). And I do happen to have two of these GMMP's in the garage, but the block is .060" I guess they are out of the question.
