Play a spot the difference game on Mazda JE V6 engine......
Mazda JE engine, which is 2,954cc V6 type of engine, can be found on Mazda Luce 3.0, Telstar 929 3.0, Sentia 3.0 or MS-9, with model code like E-LVEW, HCSS, HDES and HD5S.
Basically using the same cylinder head gasket for all model, after that you need to know whether it is 18 valves engine or 24 valves engine, after that the remaining gasket will be totally difference for this 2 types of engine.

For Mitsubishi Evolution in 4G63 engine code series of model, there are basically 2 types of rocker cover gasket that commonly sell in Malaysia market, which one of them is the older model of 4G63 VR4 DOHC rocker cover gasket and another newer a bit with 4G63 Air Trek DOHC rocker cover gasket.
And for the above 2 types of rocker cover gasket, they have a similar number of the curve area (which the curve may serve for the camshaft area) which is total 3 of them.
But there are one latest 4G63 EVO engine with the rocker cover gasket having 4 cam curve on it, what they mention is for Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 7, 8 and 9 on the engine chassis CT9A, which is still new in Malaysia market.

Actually I'm not really familiar with the Turbocharger code or their name, so I prefer to go with the engine code with their original turbocharger, as we know some may modified a more powerful turbocharge on the original one to increase the horse power.
For Daihatsu range, it is better for customer to mention it is for JB-JL or JB-DET or EF-RL instead of mentioning it is IHI-RHF3 which I will scratch my head wondering what this is.

Dealing most of the time in passenger car gasket, I found it quite different when dealing in commercial vehicle gasket such as for those use in forklift, tractor, excavator and so on.
For Komatsu 4D105 engine, it have -1, -3 and -5 code, which for -5 it is not using the same cylinder head gasket as like -1 and -3.

The new launch Ford model in Malaysia seem have lesser connection to Mazda model engine, photo showing Ford Focus 1.6 cylinder head gasket, also Ford Focus C-Max, with engine code ZETEC-SE, Ford Fiesta 1.3 may using the similar design of cylinder head gasket with smaller gasket bore.
It is not an easy task to find SAAB parts in Malaysia, even if you have the parts, you may don't know when can you sell it here, adding to my collection, for SAAB engine code B205E, B205F, B205R, B235E, B235R and B235L, but actually I really don't know if this model is existing on the road in Malaysia.
