Anyone ever use a 1pc oil pan gasket?

I need to replace the oil pan gasket on my 98 5.7L. Felpro makes a sweet looking 1pc gasket [ https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fel-os34500r ] but I've never used 1pc, nor do I know anyone who has. Do they work ok, or am I better off using the normal multi piece set?

A buddy of mine swears by them. He was suggesting when I got my new crate motor to replace the gaskets with them..

I have and a word of advice. Even though the directions say to install it dry, do not do that! I had to replace mine again after doing that. I put some RTV, or whatever your favorite sealing goo is, on the front part, where it meets the timing cover.

I use them all the time. Put a dab of rtv where the timing cover meets the block, and where the rear main cap meets the block. They work very well.
