Intake gasket

how bad does an engine leak with a front intake gasket not installed properly? mine popped out after i got done installing my cam. i just noticed it. i filled it all up with some high temp silicone while i untorqued it some and then tightend it back down. will this hold up or will i be spraying oil all over my engine? I like things done right. But this is my 85 beater truck with a BBC and its pretty crude. Am I just getting worked up over nothing? it is selaed well but the gasket popped out in the middle. the silicone must have acted like a lube and it squeezed out the seem.
