Default Fel-Pro Head Gasket - Same Part for EJ222 and EJ251/3?

Headgasket part number: Fel-pro 26415 PT

Application shows this for BOTH the EJ222 ('99-'01 2.2) and the '99+ EJ251 / EJ253 ('99+ 2.5).

How Is That Possible????




The OEM EJ222 P/N: 11044AA542





Why I ask: EJ22E + EJ25D hybrid

22 has smaller bore size, but the sealing parts are the same.

I've seen your posts for many years and respect your opinion, but many others (on other Subie sites) approve of their use. Supposedly they've improved.

When I rebuilt the SOHC EJ253 in our '99 Forester I just used the OEM MLM EJ257 head gaskets on the recommendation. The coolant ports aren't a dead match, but the engine isn't overstressed and has never run too hot or too cool. EJ257 gaskets also do away with the gasket coating, the root of oil leaks.

Likewise, I had them installed on my 03 when HGs blew up. They're more solid and a notch thinner as well, raising your compression ratio by 0.1 (no kidding, calculated it out of boredom...)
