I've used it many times with no problems. I prefer the ARP Teflon stuff now:

Permatex High Performance Thread Sealant.
It's white stuff in a white tube. I like to take a small screwdriver and put a little bit of the sealant into the bolt holes along with the stuff that is on the bolt.
Also a drop of oil under the head of the bolts.
After the heads are all torqued up and sitting for a few minutes following the torque sequence one at a time I'll back the bolts off about a 1/8 of a turn and retorque them.
A Felpro gasket engineer told me about that retorque deal years ago and it has worked out great. Put a small mark on the bolts with a silver Sharpie before you do the retorque thing and you'll see that they change a little bit.
I don't retorque them after the engine has been run and cooled.

That is more than you asked for but thats a great tip that was given to me so I'll pass it on.
Have fun,Smokey

Anybody use RTV silicone? I found some on the head bolts I took out of my 350.
