Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Mahle 5.3/5.7 MLS Head Gaskets and Bolts gen 3
Mahle Original offers a choice of cylinder head gaskets to fit your project with the most effective, leak-free seal. Because vehicles and performance levels are as different as the people who drive them, a head gasket that works for you may not work for another. Mahle Original knows this. Their list of head gasket materials includes multi-layered steel, Solicor, VR-2000, Nitroseal, and VR500. Each does their job differently, but you can rest assured that the sealing job they do will be effective and efficient. Positive sealing is available with Mahle Original cylinder head gaskets. Order the style designed for fitment with your vehicle and engine application.
These are the stock-replacement cylinder head bolts that are torque-to-yield. They are the Gen-3 design that use three different bolt lengths and were used by GM from 1997 through mid-year 2004. These cannot be reused after being torqued down because they stretch when torqued.
