Oil Pan Gasket??

got a gasket set from importcarparts.com, was like $100 I guess (Overhaul set). Was for my 4AFE project ('91 Corolla). Long story short, there is no oil pan gasket in there. The old motor didn't have one either, just red RTV Silicone. Something I should know?? I've worked on Chevy's in the past and just used RTV instead of a gasket, should I try it in the Toy?? I notice at rockauto that they do sell an oil pan gasket set...

Also what about Head Bolts, can I re-use them?? Or are they shot after 1 use??

Thanks in advance, I couldn't do this thing without you guys' advice...

I used loctite black oil pan gasket-glue. thats how the stock oil pan is installed too.
I havent heard the headbolts being stretching ones, but they sure look like such. but they tighten like the ones that dont stretch.

Weird.. I got my oilpan done on the 89 GTS and I recall getting charged for a gasket for the oilpan.. maybe the 4AGE has a gasket.

Nope, my service manual just gives instructions how to lay the bead for the oilpan, even for the 4A-GE, no mention of an oilpan gasket, havent asked a dealership about it, but a parts dealer said no such was available through them and just put a bead.
