Default EJ20 Oil Pan gasket or liquid gasket maker?

I've been searching and haven't found a paper/multilayer gasket for the oil pan on a EJ20 WRX 02 engine, I have found a lot of liquid type gasket materials, like RVT . Does anyone make aftermarket gaskets or just use liquid gasket?

subaru doesnt use a gasket on their oil pans
and as such, it is highly unlikely you will find a "gasket" for the 2.0 oil pan
oem or otherwise


simply put, You should use a 3-bond sealant
