oil filter housing gasket leak!

so just was talking my bottom pan off the car so i can put my VRSF DPs in tomorrow and noticed oil (obviously shouldnt be there) so i do some looking around and follow the leak all the way up to UNDER the oil filter cap. SO looks like ill be replacing my oil filter housing gasket and cleaning my valves at the same time. Which shouldnt be that bad so ill be saving a saturday to do these. already ordered the part so has anyone local done this yet? any advice? thanks guys!

part #11427537293 if anyone was interested what it looks like.

It's really easy to do on non-turbo. Took me 30 minutes to do mine. Only had to use ratcheting wrench and flat head screwdriver.
