IIRC, Chris, at G3 Automotive changed mine while replacing T-stat, water pump, belt, and other work. He didn't remove the front clip. I would recommend the Detroit Tuned Super Kit which includes the oil filter housing O ring/gaskets and the turbo oil lines which will leak eventually. It's a little more expensive, but corrects the two most common leak points on a 2nd Gen MCS.
