Complete Duramax Head Stud and Gasket KitsThis kit is designed to fit the 2007.5-2010 Duramax LMM engine and includes the following:
- ARP Head Stud Kit (ARP2000)
- Grade C MLS Head Gaskets by Mahle Motorsports
- Cylinder Head Gasket Kit by Mahle Motorsports
Grade C head gaskets from Mahle Motorsport are 1.05mm to compensate for the material removed when the cylinder head is resurfaced in the course of a thorough head gasket replacement or head stud installation. Each head gasket is manufactured to OEM standards from multi-layered spring steel. The gasket is stamped with a bead around each combustion chamber and oil/water passage to increase macro sealing pressure and affixed with a polymer surface coating that improves the micro seal integrity against small imperfections in the block deck or cylinder head surface.
Head stud kits for Duramax engines also come with comprehensive gasket sets to for every other component that seals against the cylinder head. It includes gaskets for the exhaust manifold, up pipe, upper and lower valve cover, along with valve cover grommets, valve seals, and turbo drain seals.
