    OEM Oil Pan Engineering

    why do some manufacturers engineer their oil pans to require a rubber gasket and others require RTV. my two examples are the honda B-series engines that have the rubber gaskets compared to the nissan sr20det engines that call for RTV. is it cost savings or is one a better design than the other?
