You're 100% correct, the material I used for these gaskets is a high quality material that is resistant to oil, fuel, & water, its easy to work with because it is very fleable but it is also tough enough to stay together and form a nice seal, I sprayed the base gasket with Copper Coat and I always use the Permatex High Tack sealant on my intake gaskets.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
