Subaru EJ series Intake Manifold Gasket

Subaru EJ series either EJ20 or EJ25 have a type of intake manifold gasket that commonly use on most of the model, normally it is just a normal gasket sheet type of material.

Until one of the Subaru Legacy under the EJ255 engine, although the shape of the intake manifold gasket is same with the one of the paper material type of gasket, the material for this EJ255 intake manifold gasket is using metal type of material, enhance with rubber seal surrounding the hole of the gasket to provide further sealing strength.

For the Nissan CA18DET engine, with the cylinder head gasket part number 11044-01Y00, the material of the gasket is graphite for the original parts, but still there are owner want to look for the metal type of cylinder head gasket, and some even wanted to have a thickness of 1.5mm.

Since KP only produce the original type of graphite material for CA18DET, we only able to outsource from other supplier for the metal type of cylinder head gasket.

Suzuki Ignis with K12C Engine

To bad to hear that Malaysia will stop the selling of Suzuki brand of car after all the Suzuki dealer in Malaysia will merge with Proton Edar, which is under DRB-HICOM.

Although under the Proton Edar, the previously Suzuki 3S center will continue to serve their existing Suzuki owners, but what for sure is they will stop selling Suzuki car at the moment.

In this case, seems the Suzuki Ignis which reveal in 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, will have a slim chance to be selling in Malaysia.

What is so special on this Suzuki Ignis? A K12C 4 cylinder DOHC engine,  seems nothing special, but how a bout Dualjet function? Which mean there are 2 injectors located in each cylinder.

And the MotorFan illustrated vol.112 magazine is having the photo of K12C cylinder head in its cover, how do you find its design?

Exhaust amount: 1242cc

Maximum output: 67kW / 6000rpm

Cherokee 4.0 Conversion Set Gasket

Cherokee Jeep 4.0 under the 242 6 cylinder engine, doesn't come with a full set gasket, it is separate with a head set gasket and a conversion set gasket (or bottom set gasket).

Normally in a conversion set, the content should be gasket and oil seal of the bottom parts of engine, which include oil pan gasket, waterpump gasket, timing and oil pump gasket, timing oil seal and flywheel oil seal.

As some bottom set gasket didn't come with the flywheel oil seal that stick together with a metal housing, it seem this type of Cherokee doesn't have the big flywheel oil seal, may be the 2 pieces of main bearing seal is consider the design of the flywheel seal for this engine.
