Fits: 2003-2006 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke (18mm) 

The Cometic MLX Head Gasket for your 2003-2006 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke is comprised of multiple layers of stainless steel due to its increased strength, ability to rebound and resistant to corrosion. The outer layers of the gaskets are embossed and coated on both sides with a flouroelastomer rubber-based material that is heat resistant to 250C/482F. This rubber based material is designed to meet the demands of a variety of harsh sealing environments, load conditions and surface finishes. The center or shim layer is an uncoated stainless steel layer that is folded back upon itself to create the locking portion of the bore seal. 

Head Gasket Highlights:

  • Incorporates a locking bore seal for even greater cylinder sealing potential 
  • Provide maximum sealing performance for todays high output engines and requires no sealants 
  • Works great for aluminum heads to aluminum blocks and aluminum heads to cast iron blocks withstanding the shearing force created by the two materials 
  • No need to re-torque, the embossing design of the MLX gasket promotes an even clamp load across the sealing surface allowing for measurable reduced bore distortion 


  • 96mm bore
  • 18mm dowels 
  • MLX construction 
  • Multiple thicknesses offered
