GE, Brand X, as long as it is the 50 year, uncut, good stuff.  Whatever is
on sale.  If the original gasket is a molded part of differing thicknesses
and shapes to fill odd gaps, just clean the old gasket and apply thin
silicone on both sides.  Mating surfaces must be solvent clean.  The common
architical silicone sealants in the 10oz tubes are good to 400F and good for
all fluids under pressure except gasoline, but never had any problem with Si
intake manifold gaskets.  Permatex makes a Si sealent rated for gasoline
under pressure.
