The MAHLE Original exhaust manifold gasket set for GM LS engines feature OE quality multi-layer steel (MLS) construction to ensure a positive seal under extreme temperatures.

The exhaust manifold set fits GM LS engines made from 1997 – 2012, including the 4.8-, 5.3-, 5.7-, 6.0- and 6.2-liter sizes. These engines power about 11 million vehicles on the road today.

The exhaust manifold gaskets in the kit (part no. MS16124) utilize three layers of 301, full hard stainless steel with an embossment on each layer at critical sealing areas for maximum sealing. The spring steel layers provide tension when compressed, keeping the joint tight and preventing the seal from being blown out.
“The MAHLE Original exhaust manifold gaskets for this GM mainstay are made exactly the same as the OE gaskets,” said Jon Douglas, general manager of MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “Technicians can install these multi-layer steel gaskets with the assurance that they will take the heat.”

MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. announced on June 30 that the new brand name for the gasket line would be MAHLE Original gaskets; these will be the same products sold in North America since well before MAHLE Aftermarket acquired the engine parts division from Dana Corporation in 2007. The MAHLE Original gasket line will continue to offer the best coverage in the aftermarket across domestic, Asian, European, and heavy-duty applications. “The company that has been behind this gasket line, is now the brand that is on them,” said Douglas.

The MAHLE Original gasket offering includes nearly 9,000 part numbers, covering 900,000 applications, with over 1,200 exclusive part numbers not available from any other aftermarket supplier.
