    I am doing the water pump install and I noticed that the original gasket is metal. The one that came with the hepu wp is rubber(?). Do I need to use some blue stuff (gasket sealer?)? Or will it be fine just torqued down?

    i was told never to use the shitty ruber gasket that came with the kit. So i went and bought my own from the dealer, it was under 5 bucks i belive. But i think it should be fine if you torque it to factory spec. I didnt trust it tho.
