Yes, that groove is to retain the seal between the box and intake tubes. I've flame should be on either side of the box. I usually lube posts with armor all to get them to slip in easier.

Springs and heavier weight oil, probably the cheapest way to go for about $130. Of course you could just do oil. After that, Race tech emulators or Ricor intiminators for about $150-$200.
