Thermostat Housing

Hey guys, just need a little help finding the parts for a new thermostat housing, and anything related that I will need to replace the part. I called Tousley Ford, but no more Steve :(
I'm thinking of purchasing the CFM revised housing, but would like to purchase whatever part that will work best, at the best price. I'm honestly not 100% sure it's even my housing that is leaking (I'm nowhere close to a mechanic, lol), but I've already had my heating core/oil cooler hose replaced and I'm still leaking. If I had to guess....I'd say the leak is coming from somewhere on the driver side near the middle/bottom of the engine. From what I've read, that's right in the area of the housing. My focus is a 2003, with 59k on it....seems about the time that these kits begin to fail (from what I've read). I've been putting coolant in it up to about 3 times a week and it's starting to annoy me.
So, just looking for all of the replacement parts, and any advice on what all I need to get to fix the issue. Thank you in advance for any help!! -Kevin

I went through a couple of the OEM housings myself and decided to purchase the CFM revised housing. It is definitely better than stock. There is also a billet one someone found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181092529271...84.m1423.l2649

X2 - best choice to fix it and not keep replacing o-rings.

FYI, the Dorman one claims it's modded to improve on the stock part, don't buy the lie, exact same as stock with all the flaws too. More Dorman bullsh-t................

I installed a Contour T-stat housing from a scrapper a month ago. Easy $20 fix.
