cam cover sealant?

ok - I'm going to change my chain tensioner this weekend, and the one thing I don't know is what to use to seal the gasket when I put the cam cover back on. Looks like some white stuff was used on the corners last time. Can I use RTV? Silicone?

That is Flouro-Silicone. Dow-Corning #760

Any sort of RTV silicone should work. Don't glob it on or you can pop the gasket out of its channel.

If you use silicone, under the hood, make sure it cures first before you start it, or use sensor safe silicone.
