Whatever works for you👍.

[Heat softens electric tape adhesive (the shifter shaft gets warm). Teflon tape doesn't; use a few turns or more of it until the knob grips firmly on the threads.]

YMMV

I currently have a MAHLE gasket that has the metal washers embedded around the bolt holes.
If you decide to use that, carry a fire extinguisher or 3 at the least. That is same as the felpro and leak prone.
ok. Is this the correct part # F57Z-6584-A?
F57Z-6584-A is the part number I have, I also need to order another for an engine I'm putting together.
