Should I use copper coat or some other kind of sealer or none at all on the new head gaskets ?

About 50/50 on the coppercoat vs dry, my informal gathering of info about this is that it seems more are using coppercoat now.

I had a can once that sprayed out like cottage cheese. I should have tried it on a piece of cardboard first. It was likely defective from the store.
