Correct....the TB has to come off......but I did get a new gasket, and I am 
pretty sure it was from SJM.

Throttle body must come off to get to the last bolt on the VC.
The TB gasket is paper so you should be able to reuse it BTDT.
A new TB gasket will be dealer only.

I'm about to replace a leaking valve cover gasket on the Avant.

Am I correct in assuming I need to remove the throttle body?

There's supposed to be a gasket between the throttle body and the intake.
Is that a dry gasket I'll be able to reuse or do I need to source that
