The one piece Felpro gasket is great. and it can be reused several times.
One word of caution though . . . the Felpro one piece sometimes includes these little blue plastic guide pins. The guide pins screw into the four large pan bolt holes, then the gasket snaps onto the guide pins and they hold it there while you put on the pan. Works great in theory, but I once managed to snap the front two guide pins off in the block when putting the oil pan in. They stuck down too low and of course putting an oil pan back while the engine is in the car is no picnic . . . I think my neighbors learned some new words that day.
ps. Its probably the thick front seal, I think the drivers side dipstick engines are that way. The thin front gaskets came into use around the same time as the passenger side dipstick. I would still double check though.
