MLS, Multi Layered Steel, Head gasket

I am replacing the head gasket on a 300 Tdi engine that I am building. The question I have is on a MLS head gasket is it advisable to use something like Copper Coat on it prior to assembly? I used one before, with out it, and didn't have any problems but I have read that some people like to use a product like Copper Coat? Opinions

Ive usedthem in turbo gas engine applications and never used copper spray. My buddy did once but it was because the mating surface on his head was marred.

That was my thinking also. If the block and the head are correct and flat I would think you wouldn't need to use anything.

Milks, do you have any followup on your MLS install?
