And it remain mystery for me on the engine of this Geely Boyue, which it can be found online with the engine code of JLD-4G24, JLD-4G20 and JLD-4G18TDB, which no further details enclose if this engine is a modification from a Japan engine or a totally develop by Geely.

Will the said Proton's SUV using the Geely Boyue original engine or using the Proton's develop engine? If it is using the China made engine, the future engine parts game play in Malaysia market may have a changes if China engine start to dominate the popular model on the road.

Kia Optima K5 Valve Cover Gasket














In this post just to share a valve cover gasket on a Korea model, KP have no product on this gasket, it is just a sharing post because found this interesting design of the gasket.

The Kia Optima K5 with G4NC engine, have a rocker cover gasket like the above photo which show its OEM part number 22441-2E000, with the 2 pieces of rubber which you can see in the photo, the design is already quite different from other type of rocker cover gasket.













But that is not the end of story, they come up with another part number of 22441-2E300 which is shown as above photo, looks similar, but actually have a longer stretch on the outer rubber.

















And from the above photo, you can see the different between 22441-2E000 and 22441-2E300 more clearly, the gasket is 22441-2E000, which try to install on a rocker cover which should use 22441-2E300, and you can see 22441-2E000 is actually shorter and have a missing stretch on it.

The engine which installed in this Boon Koon Viflex 2.0, actually is a China made engine, although it is a 2.0 capacity engine, the whole engine head and block seems not so big in size, there are not much info in the internet, except an engine model code of "DLCG12" shown in the Viflex 2.0 specification introduction brochure.























The rocker cover design as such using 2pcs separate of rocker cover gasket.














And the full set gasket content seems simple and very straight forward.

Subaru BRZ or Toyota 86 Gasket?

















When doing Google searching, found some interesting info for sharing, actually most of us already known that the Toyota 86 (Some may call it GT86 or 86 GT) is using the Subaru FA20D engine which is use in Subaru BRZ, so when come to buying Toyota 86 engine parts, will you buying on Subaru brand or on Toyota brand?

Actually Toyota have an engine code for their 86 engine, Subaru call it FA20D and Toyota call it as 4U-GSE, and for the gasket kit part number, you may found Subaru using 10105-AB550, and Toyota is using SU003-00094.











Sound interesting, come with different brand name and part number, their content may be exactly the same, for other gasket content inside the kit set, Subaru and Toyota should be also have a list of different part number among them, anyone know that Subaru and Toyota which of them will set their gasket pricing higher?
