Turbo horn!

In the process of installing bills turbo horn. Got the stock one off but the gasket broke. Wondering if you think it's alright to go to auto parts store and get some gasket maker or what the best thing to do would be

I use a VERY thin film of grey RTV. But don't use to much or it will squish out the seams and your turbo will suck it in.
