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."
Victor Reinz is the OEM manufacturer for the Valve Cover gasket.
You are fine.
