Hopefully, I can get this one right.
It's my first time getting into the engine bay under such circumstances.
I'll be going to get the Permatex Red Hi-Temp RTV tomorrow.
One concern of mine was the variation of brands offered by Pelican Parts (I chose them over BavAuto because they got down to brand specificity).
I picked the Victor Reinz brand parts.
What's the general consensus about the quality of that brand?
I've seen anything from "it's great, it's OEM" to "15k later, I had to do the job again."
You are fine.
Real OEM link:
Set of profile gaskets
Part number: 11 1 20 030 496
