Nice job, Chris
Mine is an 01 and uses the gasket, not the O-ring. The book says it should be the O-ring, but it ain't so.
I would suggest that when do'n the oil change the first time, buy the gasket the book specs but remove the cartridge cover and gasket very carefully incase it is the “other” type. This way you can reuse it and not make another trip to the shop.
We will let this run for a bit and when it is all sorted out then add it to the Halls of Da Smart Stuff with yur other one
