I usually use OEM paper/wax gaskets for just about everything. I did use Permatex's The Right Stuff for my stator cover, since the mod plate didn't allow the cover to seat fully.
I'm sure others will have good experiences just using silicone, but to me the fact that it squeezes excess outside of the engine means there must be excess sealer on the inside as well.
