Fel-Pro PermaTorque head gaskets for Subaru ‘Boxer’ engines

Federal-Mogul Corp. says its next-generation of Fel-Pro PermaTorque MLS head gaskets helps eliminate sealing concerns on the full range of Subaru 2.5-liter SOHC and DOHC “boxer” engines dating back to the 1996 model year.

Federal-Mogul says thousands of these engines might be susceptible to sealing problems related to the use of original equipment-style composite or early-generation multi-layer-steel head gaskets.

The new Fel-Pro PermaTorque MLS head gaskets combine Federal-Mogul’s multi-layer-steel gasket technologies with a next-generation LaserWeld stopper layer design, developed and validated in partnership with NASCAR Sprint Cup engine builders. Each gasket also includes a proprietary coating technology that accommodates a wide range of surface finishes encountered in the aftermarket repair environment.
