APPLICATION:: 2JZGTE engine (all). Standard bore, .020", 040" (86.0, 86.5, 87.0 bores). 2JZGE (non-turbo) ALL. Standard bore,.020", .040" (86, 86.5, 87.0mm bores).
We have done it again! Since 2009 XAT has worked to bring into service the much desired 4-piece metal head gasket for the 2JZGTE engine with a true STOPPER layer. As you know the factory 2JZ head gasket is quite robust, but there is nothing that holds boost like the STOPPER designs. The problem has always been that GReddy and HKS had a lock on this market and could charge what they want! We've been using this gasket in every 2JZ engine we've build for over a decade
NOT ANY LONGER! We have available immediately modern 4-Layer Metal Head Gaskets 1.3mm thick with the proven STOPPER layer at an affordable price, and NOT made in an Asian country!
Explanation for the difference between the 3-layer version, and this 4-layer, and the advantages. The 4 layer version allows for thinner layers, far improving heat dissipation as there are more layers to absorb the heat. Rigidity, durability and thermal transfer characteristics far exceed standard MLS head gaskets.
How does the STOPPER layer work? The stainless steel .015mm thick STOPPER layer features a precision "fold" which encircles the cylinders creating an additional load point for the combustion chambers. In English??? The STOPPER layers STOPS combustion gasses from escaping in the best means possible, period!
What about the top and bottom layers? They are active control layers are micro-embosses pre-coated steel that micro-seal engine fluids at the most disciplined level possible.
The center layer? Made out of steel, precision manufactured with the main purpose to set an accurate overall thickness tolerance for the entire gasket. This ensures even distribution of pressure in the most accurate means possible.
