A little about the Six Star Head Gaskets for your Subaru
If you want to replace your Head gaskets once and once only the Six Star Head Gasket is the one for you!
The SIX STAR MLS “STOPPER” HEAD GASKET for Subaru is ideal for both aluminum heads and aluminum blocks. A better alternative compared to other gaskets made of bonded materials that fail prematurely due to load and heat dissipation problems! By design, the MLS (multi layer steel) STOPPER head gasket has a folded bore bead that encompasses the entire combustion area. This allows for a concentrated seal along a pin-pointed surface area encompassing the combustion chamber. The gasket promotes an even torque load across a wider area and requires less clamp force resulting in less bore distortion conforming load across the sealing area! No re-torque necessary. Gaskets are made of Stainless Steel for:
Ability to rebound
Outer layers of the gasket are embossed and coated on both sides with a flouroelastomer rubber based material [Viton]:
Meets the demands of a variety of harsh environments
Load conditions/ less bore distortion
surface finishes/ better ring seal
The Viton coating is heat resistant to 250C or 453F. Center shim layer of the gasket is comprised of an uncoated stainless steel layer, which can be varied to accommodate multiple thickness requirements.
