Fel-Pro Performance PermaTorque MLS head gaskets are proven to handle big power any way you can make it. They're designed to maintain contact pressure between the cylinder head and block during the dynamics of engine operation. PermaTorque gaskets can seal combustion, oil, and coolant despite extreme horizontal and vertical motion between the cylinder head and block. Engines with open deck surfaces, numerous cooling passages, and relatively few head fasteners will greatly benefit from Fel-Pro performance PermaTorque MLS head gaskets. For replacement or upgrade, order the model recommended for your specific vehicle and engine application.

Q:

What is the required per fastener clamp force to maintain combustion seal in 550 HP NA street engine.

Asked by MICHAEL on March 27, 2019

A:

The head gasket clamping force is all dependent on the type fastener you use. You will get more clamp force using studs vs head bolts.

READ THE DIRECTIONS

FEL-1144053
I used these on a 385 I built. I needed the .053 to bring my quish area to a .035. After reading the other comments on here I started not to purchase them do to the leaks. I took a chance. When I received them I READ THE DIRECTIONS. They clearly state that on some blocks the upper tangs will not reach and you have to add sealant. I did this and the worked just fine. No Oil leaks ..... Only problem I have is that they cost so much. ...read more

Ordered these gaskets along with my new heads. Gaskets got a little kinked (damage) in shipping I suspect. Nothing too serious, they still did the job. These are a quality piece.

Mine Leaked

FEL-1144053
Looks like a quality set of gaskets, but mine leaked in the corners of each side of a fresh 406 build. After every drive, when I parked the car, there would be oil on top of my mechanical fuel pump and all over the ground under the engine. Drove me nuts for weeks trying to chase down the leaks. Talked to my engine machinist and he told me its the gaskets. Told me to put some rtv on the block surface at the front and rear of the gasket. X that, I'll go back to my trusty Felpro 1014s. Nothing like tearing apart a new engine to replace a set of head gaskets. For such an expensive set of gaskets there should be no problems. ...read more

Leaks oil

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

FEL-1144053
Great gasket. Will not mark my aluminum heads. The gasket for the SBC does not reach into the intake area and needs silicone to seal the gap near the intake. Leaked oil from all top corners. After research, I found others have had the same problem. Fel-Pro should resolve this problem or update their installation instructions to avoid this problem. ...read more
