There is a water pump housing cover redesign for 2000-2003.5. It uses a different seal (not a gasket - a formed silicone seal - think O-ring). Get in touch with a CF vendor, RippyPartsDept up in the Vendor threads ^^^.

Water pumps leak at the shaft seal. You are looking at a gasket. Not sure where it's leaking , but if it's the front cover, that's an easy fix. If it is the crossover manifold, that will be a PITA.
