Im going to changing my water pump next week. My question is do I use just the dry gasket that comes with the water pump? Or use the dry gasket+ Toyota FIPG or just the Toyota FIPG? The FSM says to use the FIPG But the new pump comes with a dry gasket.

All the new style pumps come with a metal gasket. Those work great and you should NOT use FIPG with that gasket.

The old pumps just used FIPG/RTV and when installed correctly never leaked, but they are a little more tricky to install right. The newer metal gasket style is the better option.

Just FYI, on the Asin pump I just installed, you MUST use the metal gasket. If you don't, the spacing will be off and your pump fins may scrap the inside housing.
