If the Permatex was hard to get out of the tube, that'll throw a lot of things off. Like torque values.

Copper spray that worked wonders in the days of black and white TV may not be the best sealant in a tiny little Japanese engine. Your Honda doesn't use the same gas or oil that they did back then, either. Chemicals aren't better or worse than each other, they're just either right or wrong for your application. Stop asking the kids on teh interwebs what the best sealant is and look up the OE spec.
