Default subaru updated 4 layer head gasket vs. all others

I've done my search already, but I havent found exactly what Im looking for-

I got a set of kabuki made in china graphite head gaskets (came in a kit, and the little gasket here and there was worthwhile for another motor)- Im tempted to use them on my DOHC phase 1 engine.

The retardedness of it is, OEM 4 layer updated head gaskets to fix the o so common problem is only like 30 dollars. But before one of you says, "Just get the OEM", question is...

Some places online are saying how graphite is better, than MLS. So I just wanted to get your opinions before I choose one or the other.

Well, thats not necessarily true. A lot of OEM Stuff is from china, and a lot of shops dont order OEM gaskets when they do HG jobs. I was just wondering if anyone has used them personally- or know of anyone who has. A lot of yoda and isuzu guys have used them without problems.

Well, I think it's a blown head gasket after all. Patrick Olsen New England Impreza Club Forum -- NESIC 13 03-05-2001 02:01 PM
