Oh and Sean, my HEMI t stat had that hole as well
The only critical part about the new t-stat install is the direction it faces. If you install it upside down it will be a problem. My stock stat was stuck pretty good, but I just took a small screwdriver and pried it up (from the center part, not the edge where the gasket is).
Which stat did you buy? I bought mine from Jet because I've always had good luck with them. Mine came with a new gasket too. It slid right in place. I had the entire job done in less than 3 mins.
