When I bought my '90 V8 I replaced this - 077 115 427E - gasket - gasket for oil thermostat housing / outlet for
temperature sensors / oil cooler.
I do not have any leaks from the right side of the head today after 7 years. Check here.
It is most likely a 2+ hour job to replace this.

My engine was taken out of the car during last month, and we replaced lots
and lots of gaskets. It's easier to list what's not been replaced:
077 103 161C - gasket between block and sealing flange
077 103 171G - sealing flange (rear crank radial seal) - I don't have a leak
at the rear of the engine
077 103 609E - gasket - upper oil sump gasket
077 103 610C - gasket - lower oil sump gasket
077 115 427E - gasket - gasket for oil thermostat housing / outlet for
temperature sensors / oil cooler
These are the only gaskets/seal I can think of that has not been changed.
...but the darned thing still leaks!!!
If I were to tighten the heads a bit more, how much? 1/8 of a turn? 1/4?
