doing a 4v conversion on 302 with performer intake. Saw that manual called for sealing washers. Found them at Home Depot. Question is do I need them with aluminium aftermarket manifold?

??? What manual are you reading? A 1/4" bead of silicon at the ends (in place of the cork end gaskets) is about it, save for the intake flange gaskets themselves.

I don't know anything about Sealing Washers, but on an Aluminum Intake I would invest in some 5/16 stainless steel washers for under bold heads. I would also get stainless bolts, they look good when polished. The washers will keep the bolt heads from digging into the aluminum.
