Toyota 2ZR-FE Camshaft Bearing Cap Oil Hole Gasket

The local Toyota Altis ZRE# model is using the 2ZR-FE engine, which basically is the same engine family for 1ZR-FE and 3ZR-FE with different CC, and use on model like Auris, Avensis ZRE# or ZRF# model, there are one piece of gasket at the camshaft bearing cap oil hole as on above photo.

The gasket is shown in the above diagram with the indicator number 11159H, and the gasket is like the below photo, we found this piece of gasket is included on the KP rocker cover gasket set, so can we consider this piece of gasket need to be change whenever the rocker cover gasket replacement is carry out? As we still found quite a lot of them just buying the rocker cover gasket and plug seal for the gasket replacement and didn't include this piece of gasket.

Daihatsu YRV, Gran Max Exhaust Manifold Gasket

Daihatsu YRV Tubo and Gran Max model, which using the K3-VET and 3SZ-VE engine, is the engine very similar to the previous version of Perodua MVYI and Toyota Avanza which using the K3-VE and 2SZ-FE engine.

Interesting to find out that the exhaust manifold gasket for the YRV or Gran Max type have extra 2 holes compare to the MYVI and Avanza version, it seems like the lesser holes version can be use on all model, is the extra 2 screw holes serve any purpose? Is it because of the turbo version of YRV need extra tightening on the exhaust manifold side to prevent leaking?
