Anyone know if the throttle body gasket can be re-used after removing the throttle body on the 3.3L engine? Are there potential sealing issues if the original is re-used?

No real issues, it is a thick grey silicone ring set in groove at plastic intake plenum opening where throttle body bolt in place. Ideally it should be replaced, I think Hyundai consider it an expendible part.. and slight pricey too.. Part can be had at both Hyundai and Kia dealer.

Why are we removing throttle body in first place ?

isnt the flat dark grey one is the one on 3.8 aluminum manifolds and the 3.3 plastic manifold one an orange o ring?
