just replaced my non-svt housing and stat, and was very careful not to torque down the screws to the cover and bolts to head per the warnings of cracking plastic. Although it did say 15ft lbs or something to the head ( dont quote me ) on engine torque specs someone posted on FF.

I also put a little tiny bit of RTV in the corroded pit marks left in the head around where the housing o-ring mates.

Leaked out about less than a half quart, at that rear spot of the trans pan. not 100% sure its the housing area, maybe hose, HOPEFULLY not head gasket. happened after a day driving and then sitting on ramps for 8 days.
