Valve Cover Gaskets

Any recommendations for valve cover gaskets?

These intrigue me, but I gather they need really low torque specs which sorta makes me worry abt bolts backing out:

Also been eyeballing the Moroso but they seem a bit pricey. Haven't seen/used them in person though. If they're high quality i'd consider them if it meant not having to replace them again in another 10 yrs or so.

Most modern gaskets are silicone similar to that. I don't know what they withstand as far as tightening goes. You would want to be aware that you can overtighten them and damage them. Modern gaskets are also either in channels that keep them contained or have inserts in them to prevent overtightening. I can't tell if these do or not.
