Default Choosing Oil Pan Gasket

What kind of Oil Pan gasket did everyone go with?

the FRPP 1 piece metal gasket

I believe the best way to do it is install the timing cover first then put the pan on last, because it overlaps onto the front cover...

Correct!

Timing cover before oil pan.

Is the engine out of the car?

Either gasket mentioned will be fine and light years ahead of the cork crap.
