Yesterday I put on an oil pan using Permetex The Right Stuff using the application can. First time I tried it.

I have to admit I loved how quick and easy it was to make a nice bead and the fact you can put the vehicle back into service immediately.

You guys have RTV's you really like to use?

Are there any downsides to using high temp RTV on low temp applications? Just expense?

Threebond, sparingly. I'm a firm believer that gaskets + prep work is king. Only place on my vehicle RTV exists is where absolutely needed; sealing the 2 halves of the front diff, and the 4 corners of my oil pan where the front+rear main covers meet the block.

I love The Right Stuff. I have used it on intakes for the ends of the them (3800, L98, LT1) and some rear diffs.
I think it is the best RTV I have every used.
