Exhaust Gaskets (Again)
OK guys - Don't want to keeping beating this dead horse, but I just got my new exhaust gaskets and I see people saying "make sure they're oriented right." They are symmetrical if you flip them over but they are not flat - if you look at them they all have a raised portion on one side and I was wondering if it mattered which way they go.
Also, should I put a thin layer of 1211 on them even though they're new? Does the factory put anything on them?

This is not beating a dead horse and a very good question.
Raised portion faces manifold, no additional sealant needed.
Ensure both surfaces are pristine - use MILD scotchbrite or phenolic scraper + solvent to remove all residue - make certain you do not remove any metal.
Crush gasket evenly and torque.

also the round one you will see a smal R on it when you install it have the R on the right bottom side so you can read it...............
