and why are the regular MLS gaskets coming as 2.3mm compared to the stock 1.87mm. why such a difference, does the comp ration get too high?

it depends lot of which kind of engine you are building...

if compression rate is lower than stock... you can use higher higher boost... like over 2.5bar

and this helps a lot with cylinder head flowing...

we measured that m21 cylinder head flows about 145hp in stock condition... but my head flows about 250hp easily now...

but main reason to your question is that i had no choice... my friend had one spare mls gasket and it was that...

I have now read this whole thread and also checked out all of your pictures in the eyecandy section. Very nice project and car i must say! Looks almost like my 524td, same paintcode and then i've even got a set of Breyton magic 19" rims that looks almost like yours except from the "splitwheel bolts". :shock: :D

I have a similar project going on with my car, but don't worry it will be repainted in another colour and use other rims. ;)
Maybe i will put up a project thread in here later on.

I'm very curious on how your new fuelsystem works. :) That's one thing that has annoyed me for long time, the stock filtering when there is airbubbles.
Update us! :D



And Jelmer538i: I'll try to get up a project thread soon. I really love the 524td's and it's real nice to see that there are serious people tuning these wonderful cars! ;)

Hell yeah!!! i DID IT!

we got an leaky mls gasket.... with daily driving and 1bar boost

i think this is caused by failure in bloc deck surface... or leak between layers of mls gasket... which i dont glued...

Congrats! Or what should i say.. :D It sounds like the issue depends on either block or cylinderhead surface. What i've heard the MLS gaskets requires very good surface finish to work. Some poeple says that you have to glue, and some says you don't have to. But the surface finish is quite important to get it seal properly. This by experiences on gasser engines, but the same should apply for the diesel, if not more important than gas engine.

i have some ideas about this...

my cylinderhead was better than new one... and never used...

but that block or.... hard studs caused this by aluminum head thermal expansion...

and i used vht copper gasket glue... that i always use...

mls gasket with elastomer doesnt need glue...

there is some good info in the turbo section about MLS gaskets. I'm sure you know what your doing because your work looks good. A lot of guys had leaks when the surface of the head and block weren't at a mirror finish.
