just wanted to give you all an update I did my oil filter housing gasket this weekend and everything went well wanted to say thanks to jdbretz for his help with this project. It was a long process and I messed up the head on one of the bolts my advice is to get torx sockets and def a racheting wrench for the bolt underneath the housing. I had to tie some the bolts with fishing line (powerpro) just incase they feel down. Once they fall its a super PITA to retrieve them. Make sure you bleed the water pump b4 you start the car to get all the air out.
