My rocker arm bolts were covered in red RTV. After some extensive cleaning I have gotten most of it off, but after asking around FB it appears RTV might not be something a factory stock engine should have.

Any insights here would be helpful as it may confirm the dealership was less than honest.

Stock heads? Ported heads have holes from the rocker bolts into the runners, though red rtv isn't something I'd use for thread sealant. My stock setup did have some type of sealer under the bolt heads but I don't recall it being red.

Engine was a completely stock and supposedly un opened long block from GM when it was put in 2 years ago.
