I couldn't really find any information on here but has anyone had any luck with the Fel-Pro MLS headgaskets? I did some looking around and alot of people say that the MLS design is what i should be looking for, which from what i've read is what the OEM corrected gaskets are made of. Just hoping someone else has had a good experience with these. I Know i should be buying OEM but thats not exactly an option at the moment. :/

I say no - OEM only.


Others say they have purchased Fel Pro and the stamping on the HG's were Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (the same as OEM).


I use Fel-Pro on most everything else fo rHG's and intake, exhaust, etc.  But on Suby 2.5's I use OEM only.

I know the Felpro head gasket for the 2.2 is the exact same part as what you would get from a dealer, and yes they even have the FHI logo. But the 2.2 gasket is an entirely different design.
I do not know if the 2.5 gaskets are the same. One of these days I intend to find out, but for now my advice is to use a dealer gasket.
