I've only used oem gaskets on the hemi. They look different from the felpro gaskets I've seen. Fairly new is the MLS gaskets first manufactured by Cometic. This are IMO the best gasket available. I had a nasty exhaust leak on my 12v and fixed it using Cometic MLS gasket which surprised me some as the flange surface was damaged.

I had previously popped 2 Remflex gaskets in my truck and it is leaking again. I had the header flanges resurfaced the first time they popped, but they blew again anyways. I honestly have to say that I have had very good luck with Remflex gasket in Ford applications, but in this Hemi it is not working very well for me.
Anyways, after doing some research I see that almost everyone recommends using OEM gaskets so I ordered a set. My question is, do you install them dry or do you spray-coat them with high temp silicone?
