Default 03 s Type 4.2 coolant inlet pipe leaking

I had to replace my thermostat housing assembly on my s Type 4.2 na, after completed I canít get the coolant inlet pipe to seal. It keeps leaking from where the o-ring is. Iíve pulled it apart and tried different new housing assemblies and still leaks.

Did you replace o ring w/ new?

Did you lube the o ring with coolant before install?

Did you torque unit down to factory spec?

Yes I did use a new o-ring with lubrication on it and torqued to correct spec. I even changed the inlet tube under the intake elbow just in case the one had a problem but still leaks.
