Good point there.

Replace the steel inlet if you haven't done it in a while, or ever. It's probably warped and pitted.

$13 is what I paid at Napa if I remember correctly.

Take it from me, that thermostat housing is extremely easy to break.. Just did mine and the lower bolt hole sheared off when torqued down to shy of 20ft-lbs with a felpro gasket. That crap leaks like a sieve btw, just use rtv gasket silicone. 16ft lbs is recommended but wouldnt seal up at that, 20 snapped off the lower bolt hole. A washer has it held together till i get 3 hrs to take apart, replace the parts and let the rtv harden up. I have like 1/8" between the bolt head and belt right now XD
