Here’s my strategy about that:
1. I’m going to stick the bolts in the valley gasket first (with sealer on it.
2. I’ll install the clips on the front and back to hold down the insulation pad.
3. I’ll tighten those smaller 6 bolt with the manifold bolts in.
4. I’ll remove the manifold bolt, put sealer on the top of the valley gasket, and install the manifold.
5. Tighten bolts in sensible sequence.

I re-installed the intake manifold on my H 2or3 years ago and just followed the instructions that came with the new metal valley pan gasket.
Worked fine - no vacuum leaks. Did have trouble placing the manifold exactly over the bolt holes without displacing the metal gasket. so used some short pieces of smaller diameter metal rod to help with the alignment.

Several weeks ago I discovered I had a massive leak between my intake manifold and each heads, pretty much halfway back on each side.
