Default Doing LIM job - what gasket is this?

Hey Guys,

Doing my LIM and accidentally removed a part right under the coolent temp sensor - there are three bolts holding it in. Anyway, I can't seem to find this gasket anywhere and don't really even know what it is called.

Can I just use black rtv to make a seal for it?

The only place I recall seeing that gasket is at ZZ performance, it'* called a intake end cap gasket and it'* like $2. RTV might work, but can't say for sure.

Thanks dan. The one at zz performance doesn't look like it would fit, so I'm just going to go with alot of RTV and hope for hte best.

Ack, you are correct, wrong year. Use some red RTV, make a nice, but not to big of a bead. Put it in place and draw in the bolts but not tight, leave them a little loose. Let RTV harden. Then torque the bolts to teh correct amount.
