Mitsubishi Triton 2.5 DOHC 16V Overhaul Set Gasket

Mitsubishi engine code 4D56 can be consider quite an old code since 1986~, which it can be found on some Pajero, Delica and Montero model.

All the while, if there are any upgrading on this 4D56 engine by Mitsubishi, it still design as a SOHC 8 valve diesel engine, until recent year, they come out with the latest upgrading, with the same engine code of 4D56, but design as DOHC 16 valve engine.

This engine can be found in the new Mitsubishi Triton 2.5 in Malaysia, by just looking at the content of the overhaul set gasket, we can know that it should be have a lot of improvement from the previous 4D56.

Toyota Levin 4A-GE Exhaust Manifold Gasket

Toyota Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno, with the 4A-GE engine, normally we differentiate it with the 16 valves model or 20 valves model, let's take a look on their exhaust manifold gasket as in above photo, looks similar isn't it? May be you just find it the difference is only the gasket material on the above photo.

Now let's overlap both gasket and check it out.

After overlapping both gasket, which shown as in the above photo, all the holes is align well except the 2 holes at the left and right side which have the arrow pointed on it, basically it is only this 2 holes that differentiate this 2 gasket.  

And than, I found this in a website, can you see what have they done on this gasket, the 2 holes that differentiate that 2 gasket, is made longer in this type of gasket, and made this gasket can be use on both for 16 valves and 20 valves model, and I like the way of their design.
