Skip the permatex, go ahead and scuff the pan mating surface and get some Hylomar racing formula and hit the gasket both sides liberally with that stuff and you will have ZERO leaks .wear nitrile gloves, you dont want to have to get that stuff off your hands Get a few tubes and be prepared to have wallet shock, but there's nothing better ( thats the same stuff that is the factory sealant on rolls royce jet aircraft engines :-) even if you get a gap from an irregularity in the pan it will hold.it wont pull away once it's in place like everything else.
