MAHLE Original Gasket Head Set for the Ford PowerStroke® is the Most Complete Set Available in the Industry

Farmington Hills, Mich., July 18, 2016 – The MAHLE Original® cylinder head gasket set from MAHLE Aftermarket for the Ford 6.0L Power Stroke® engine comes with significantly more components than sets offered by any other aftermaket suppliers or even from the OE dealer. The MAHLE Original head gasket set includes 193 pieces, all engineered to match the exact, original equipment parts for form, fit and function.

Compared to the dealer set, the MAHLE Original set has 91 more pieces – including important parts such as the lower valve cover and intake/exhaust manifold gaskets, o-rings, high pressure oil pump and valve stem seals, and more. Compared to the leading aftermarket competitor, the MAHLE Original set has 45 additional gaskets and seals. To follow OE form, fit and function, the seals in the MAHLE Original set are color coded to match the OE parts to easily identify their proper replacement location. This MAHLE Original head set for the 6.0L Power Stroke is available in both 18 mm (HS54450) and 20 mm (HS54579).

“The MAHLE Original head gasket set for this extremely popular engine includes all the gaskets and seals a technician would need to do the job right,” said Jon Douglas, general manager of MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “Surprisingly, some sets from other manufacturers don’t even include the head gaskets in their head gasket set. Plus, MAHLE Original gaskets are made to the same exacting standards as the OE gaskets that came in the engine when new.”

MAHLE Original gaskets are application engineered; the exhaust manifold and EGR cooler gaskets for this application are multi-layered/embossed stainless steel tohold up against extreme temperatures of a medium duty diesel engine. While other gaskets available in the aftermarket are made of an inferior graphite composite material.
