Federal-Mogul Corporation’s Fel-Pro® PermaTorqueMLS® multi-layer-steel performance head gaskets sealed the engines for nine of the top 10 finishers including race-winner Ryan Newman of Penske Racing at the 2008 Daytona 500.
The winners of dozens of NASCAR Cup, Nationwide and Craftsman Truck series races, Fel-Pro PermaTorqueMLS head gaskets are available for an extensive range of racing and passenger-car applications.
Top 10 engines sealed with Fel-Pro MLS head gaskets at Daytona included those in every Dodge (Fel-Pro p/n 1103L/1103R), Toyota (p/n 1180L/1180R) and Ford (p/n 1135) entry. The Fel-Pro brand also claimed victories in the Nationwide Series Camping World 300, where it sealed the #20 Toyota driven by Tony Stewart, and in the Craftsman Truck Series Chevy Silverado 250, where Todd Bodine’s #30 Toyota Tundra took the checkered flag.
“PermaTorqueMLS head gaskets have changed engine sealing technology in Cup, Nationwide and Craftsman Truck series racing,” said Fel-Pro Performance and Specialty Lines Product Manager Ron Rotunno. “Introduced with the Dodge P7R5 engine platform, Fel-Pro’s MLS design has grown to more than 125 part numbers for performance applications. Today every Dodge, Ford and Toyota in NASCAR competition relies on Fel-Pro PermaTorqueMLS head gaskets. This same technology is available right off the shelf for the performance enthusiast and engine builder. ”
Fel-Pro PermaTorqueMLS performance head gaskets feature multiple layers of full-hard stainless steel, precise sealing beads and a proprietary aftermarket coating that allows for lateral and vertical motion of the cylinder head without compromising sealing performance. This is extremely important in severe operating conditions, where high temperatures, extreme combustion pressure and rapid changes in engine RPM are the norm. Federal-Mogul also offers an array of Fel-Pro PermaTorqueMLS head gaskets for late-model passenger vehicle engines originally equipped with MLS technology and others that are best sealed with an MLS solution in the aftermarket environment.
