The answer is no. The trigger rear main seal has an additional 1mm of thickness.

i didnt see this earlier. no extra gasket needed, in fact the box should state: no gasket, no lubrication, no oil, great etc
i purchased the snap-on tool for this cos mine was leaking at the first time (on the bottom)
after inserting the seal on, and putting the 5 bolts in as a guide, I tighten the bottom bolts first

Great album, thanks. Saw a bunch of results in Google images of people using the gasket and wanted to make sure. What Snap-On tool are you referring to? For this I bolted the flywheel to press the ring on.

Gasket was good for drilling/tapping hole though:

i used snap-on Model T10134 (i was lucky, i could get a loaner)

tool is not so much necessary as it would be for a stock ecu where the timing must be on sport, cos you can adjust it in your ecu but it helped to install the seal properly
once again mine was leaking first time, so i didnt want to take the chance
