I belive you need both of them, one seals the thermostat, the other seals the housing. You will also need some gasket sealer. This will only be a few bucks at some place like autozone.

Actually, I beleave you only -need- the Oring, however I dont think it would hurt to do both.

Now, that is taking in to effect the gasket dont break when removing it. For the price, it'* worth just getting a new one.

And a gasket is a very good idea as the LIM and housing age, and begin pitting.

This debate can go on for hours. Yes, it came OEM without the paper gasket, and yes, for the price, it'* very good insurance for replacement. Especially if you run DEX.
