There's always different ways to do a particular job.

The trick, in life, is to know which of those ways are stupid....

The pan gasket is green because the rods are aftermarket and even the crank as it doesn’t look like the right color.

Since Greg is using OEM a lot, I guess Porsche actually improved this part!? Too good to be true....

A few of holes are off center and the holes are way too big. What's up with that?

Larger holes for spacers to prevent crushing?

Perhaps the material has been properly changed to a Fluorosilicone rubber (normally bluish), which is compatible with fuel and oil vs. silicone rubber (reddish), which is not?

I think I see a new GB inspired pan gasket to better all pan gaskets.
