Where are you located? Just curious as Intense has SUPER fast shipping. I can order before 5pm on say like a Monday, and get it the next morning, but I only live 100 miles from their place.

I bet you get it within 3 days.

I'm pretty sure all you need is the o-ring, but some rtv or silicone on the mating surfaces between the t-stat housing and LIM gives a little added protection.

Yep. T-stat o-ring, and t-stat housing gasket (sometimes not to referred to as that). I also dabbed some orange high temp rtv around the t-stat housing gasket to be safe.

I would think not. It doesn't hamper the safety in the vehicle in any way, shape, or form. If they ask, say you were looking for better fuel mileage lol but it'* none of their business.
