I did this on my convertible about 10 years ago. Yes, it's a "U" shaped gasket. A torque wrench is not "required" but useful when re-assembling. You'll need to remove the "Y-pipe" to get in there. ...

Do you have spark?

There are services on the internet that will program your ECM with the correct VIN and mileage. https://carcomputerexchange.com/ is one of those. It'll probably be cheaper than the tow.
