New Sets Among 31 Additional Fel-Pro Part Numbers Now Available for
Late-Model 2.5L and 3.0L Subaru Applications
Southfield, Michigan, September 2, 2014...Federal-Mogul Motorparts' Fel-Pro® Gaskets brand has introduced three first-to-market PermaTorque® MLS multi-layer-steel head gasket sets for a variety of popular 2.5L engines used in late-model Subaru passenger vehicles. The new sets are among 31 additional Fel-Pro part numbers introduced in the past year for more than 2.3 million Subaru vehicles.
Each new Fel-Pro head set features the brand's premium, problem-solving PermaTorque MLS head gaskets, which provide the robust seal needed to contain peak combustion pressures and temperatures and withstand the significant casting motion encountered in many of today's automotive engines. Each gasket features multiple layers of full-hard stainless steel, precisely engineered sealing beads and the brand's proprietary blue aftermarket coating, which accommodates a wider range of surface finishes. Also featured in each head gasket is the brand's exclusive LaserWeld® stopper layer, which provides a precisely determined compression limit to help reduce head lift and bore distortion and prevent gasket damage while ensuring a superior combustion seal.
The following new PermaTorque MLS head sets are now available through Fel-Pro suppliers:
HS26531PT 2006-2007 Subaru H4 2.5L DOHC EJ255 (Forester, Impreza)
2007-2009 Subaru H4 2.5L DOHC EJ257 (Impreza)
