If you do some searching on Jseabert'* change, you'll find a gasket kit part number listed. It'll give you everything EXCEPT the TB gasket I think. You want that too, because it'* a prime opportunity to remove and clean the throttle body.

You need a torque wrench and a manual to do this, even though all the torque specs are in Techinfo. Take pictures as you go for reference, and label or tag everything you disconnect or remove.

Jseabert, who had never even changed his own oil, did this in one day with my manual and torque wrench (I didn't help him).

No. I'd buy Chilton'* #28200......it'll cover your engine, but not your body. Maybe the equivalent for the Regal body. Best aftermarket option out there. Mine was only $12.
