    Use the blue. It won't hurt, and will give you a good peace of mind.

      What a PITA that gasket is! Buttoned up and no leaks. Will see how long the EBC Spring will last? Thanks for all the help! For someone doing this for the first time I found that mineral sprite on a rag, razor blade and even a flat screwdriver used very lightly in the small areas you really can't get you hand into got 99% of the gasket off. Then I used (again very lightly) 400 grit sandpaper to finish off the little areas of gasket. Wiped down with brake cleaner and go to go!

        Should have used a Roloc disc. It comes off in about 5 minutes or less.

          Where's the best place to get these Roloc disks?

            They sell them at HF if you have one close by. Fastenal has them, Ebay, probably Amazon or use google and and check auto parts stores

            BTW HF don't sell Roloc brand but the ones they sell work just fine

            Here is a kit on Ebay

              Man, this sure would have been helpful if I knew about this before I started the project!

                  My 2008 came off clean. If it hadn’t, I’d have used a chemical, not an abrasive. No need to risk pitting a scratch in the aluminum and having a leak. I sprayed the gasket with Permatex copper gasket spray and it sealed great.
