Header gasket direction

I have hopefully a simple question, but have not found it via search.

When replacing the header gasket (copper crush), what direction faces the front? Do the little tabs go on the outside (facing the front wheel), or on the back? Or am I overthinking it and makes no difference.

Also, are there any best practices or recommendations for sealing the joints of the exhaust back together again (putting on a new system). I've read about people using grease or silicon to avoid leaks.

Thanks!

Just checked the manual
It says the face of the gasket with the tab should be toward the cylinder head.

If you’re not already aware, there’s a specific tightening sequence AND torquing procedure to the exhaust studs.
Be careful doing that

Thanks for that - I did not see it in the manual that I am using.

I am aware of the tightening sequence, so hopefully no issues with that!
