I installed the new gasket yesterday. It is no a real difficult job but you need a mirror and a flash light and it is kind of tight back there . The bolt holding down the intake pipe is difficult to see. The old gasket was all gunked up with oil and thats maybe the problem why the engine uses 1 quart less then 1000 miles. The new gasket is virtually the same, except they added more “ridges” to the outside of the gasket, I guess to make a better seal. I hope I put a stop to the oil usage.
