Mahle Original exhaust manifold gasket set

The new Mahle Original exhaust manifold gasket set for the popular GM LS engines feature OE quality multi-layer steel (MLS) is constructed 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.”
