Farmington Hills, Mich., Sept. 15, 2016 – TheMAHLE Original® oil filter adapter gasket for 2005-2011 GM 3.5L/3.9L, V6 High Value engines matchesthe latest OE design and helps seal in thischallenging environment. The gasket is installedbetween the engine block and the oil filter adapter,and was installed on 3.75 million cars in NorthAmerica.

The MAHLE Original gasket (part no. B32184) uses alkyl acrylate copolymer (ACM) acrylic rubber that has outstanding resistance to hot oil and oxidation, and is the same type of high-performance polymer that is used on the new OE replacement part.

“The MAHLE Original oil filter adapter gasket is indistinguishable from the latest GM replacement gasket,” said Jon Douglas, general manager of MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “Other aftermarket suppliers have not gone to the same effort to match the original equipment form, fit and function of this critical part. There are millions of cars on the road today that will need this part.”

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 2007 under the Victor Reinz brand licensed to MAHLE Aftermarket. The MAHLE Original gasket line will continue to offer the best coverage in the aftermarket across domestic, Asian, European, and heavy-duty applications. 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.
