I wanted to post a few pictures and let everyone know that Subaru has finally changed the head gasket design for the 2010 models 2.5L N/A (Naturally Aspirated) models.
The gasket pictured below resembles the Head Gasket used in the Turbo models, the Tribeca, as well as the 2nd generation 2.2l and the updated gasket for the 1st generation 2.5L (I know there’s a lot to follow there).
The new gasket is not interchangeable with the older model 2.5L engines. But it proves what I have been stating all along, a MLS (Multi Layer Shim) gasket is what is needed!
Thanks for reading
