    stock head gasket already has some type of sealer on it so I don't bother spraying copper anymore. Built 4 tec motors with and without the spray and never had head sealing issues, guess I have been lucky.
    I usually have the machine shop check the block and head to make sure the sealing surfaces are in good shape.

    I use the copper spray on my head gasket and exhaust manifold. I use it anytime I replace a MLS(multi layer steel) head gasket on cars or diesels that i work on.
