The Mahle Original brand cylinder head gasket set from Mahle Aftermarket for the Ford 6.0L PowerStroke engine comes with 193 pieces engineered to match the original equipment parts for form, fit and function.
The company says the Mahle Original set has significantly more components than sets offered by any other aftermarket suppliers or even from the OE dealer.
Compared to the dealer set, the Mahle Original set has 91 more pieces, including parts such as the lower valve cover and intake/exhaust manifold gaskets, o-rings, high pressure oil pump and valve stem seals, and more.
Compared to the leading aftermarket competitor, the Mahle Original set has 45 additional gaskets and seals.
To follow OE form, fit and function, the company says the seals in the Mahle Original set are color coded to match the OE parts to easily identify their proper replacement location.
The Mahle Original head set for the 6.0L PowerStroke is available in both 18 mm (HS54450) and 20 mm (HS54579).
“The Mahle Original head gasket set for this extremely popular engine includes all the gaskets and seals a technician would need to do the job right,” says Jon Douglas, general manager of Mahle Aftermarket North America.
“Surprisingly, some sets from other manufacturers don’t even include the head gaskets in their head gasket set. Plus, Mahle Original gaskets are made to the same exacting standards as the OE gaskets that came in the engine when new,” he says.
The company says Mahle Original gaskets are application engineered; the exhaust manifold and EGR cooler gaskets for this application are multilayered/embossed stainless steel to hold up against extreme temperatures of a medium duty diesel engine.
