Default 2003 SSei - Oil Pan Leak Again - Better Gasket?

Time to repair the oil pan gasket again for the third time on our supercharged Series 2.. This was where I did it in 2007 after the dealer did it sometime during warranty:

https://www.gmforum.com/general-gm-c...2003-a-254300/

First replacement by the dealer was OEM by GM, So I assume those don't last. This Felpro lasted 6.5 years which I guess was better than GM.

Anyone know of a better gasket alternative than the Felpro?

Thanks

With the aluminum pans I usually add a small bead of anirobic sealant to the outside edge of the pan. It seems to do a good job of keeping them sealed and it doesn't react to the silicone rubber gasket.
