Aluminum intake: Professional Products Crosswind (air gap clone), felpro 1206 gasket with RTV sealant on end seals. Heads and blocks not milled.

First rebuild it had a felpro 1205 sealed in the same manner. I then pulled the intake at around 700 miles or so (suspect sucking oil from galley) but I did not see any evidence in the intake ports of oil laying on backside of valves; replaced with 1205 in same manner. Recent rebuild builder used a 1206 (better port match) and sealed up in the same standard manner. He wants to rule out intake, but I don't understand if the back of the intakes were clean in the past and assume they still are now that intake sealing could even be a possible issue.
