Exhaust manifold gasket???

I'm in the middle of putting a new intake/exhaust manifold gasket on my Jeep w/2.5 and I got a Fel-Pro gasket. It has a shiny metallic side and a paper side. I for the life of me can't find any info on which way it goes. So my question is does the shiny side go to the head or manifold??

Thanks, Donnie.

Wealways put the shiny side towards the exaust manifold. I however do not know this is correct, it is just the way my dad showed me to do it, and I have done it many times,,,,, But I may be wrong!!

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.
