I'm assuming I need to replace some gaskets, Which gaskets do I need and where can I get them? BTW it's a 30v V6.

Purems has the 30v valve cover seal for $27.95. Most likely the price for each side.

Already ordered them form ECS, They were $24.95 per side. Saved $6 [:D].

I got my 1.8t valve cover gasket from the dealership and it was only 28 with tax. No shipping.

Yeah it did seem a little over kill seeing that they would charge $9+ for such a light box to go from OH to MN. But most companies add a handling charge to cover boxes and peanuts.

I checked the shipping cost for the same parts to MN, it was $9+ for ECS and $11+ for purems. Both using ground shipping to a house.

I paid 12 bux shipping for two sets, I did think it was kinda high.

Yeah thats why when I compare prices at different sites I always include the shipping since some shops use shipping to make up for setting lower prices.
