Does the 3SGTE have removable spark plug tubes like the 5SFE? If so, the threads on those do need to be resealed every once in a while. BGB recommends blue-strength high-temp thread locker, though others on this board swear by FIPG. This is separate from the spark plug tube gaskets which are replaced at the same time as the valve cover gasket.
