I'm trying to remember if it needs one. I am thinking the thermostat is the gasket, but please dont quote me on it. I just vaguely remember going thru the same thing. But silicone pops into my head for some reason.... sorry not much help I know.

I actually wass checking in to see how its going. Its great to see your turbo is going to be home soon. Where u getting it, and which one?

^^Correct, But I think you can buy another one for it if it gets worn really bad? I just changed mine the other day and the o-ring was in good condition

The ZM engine is the one that needs a thermostat gasket. The FS does not. Just to clarify, I looked it up here: http://web.archive.org/web/20061223062340/http://protege5.ugly.net/01-12.PDF

Or refer to below. I edited out the ZM info to make it less confusing.

COOLING SYSTEM

FS
1. Install the thermostat into the thermostat case
with the jiggle pin and projection at the top.
2. Install the thermostat into the thermostat case,
aligning the projection on the gasket to the
thermostat case.
