Cut Ring Head Gasket

The SCE Cut Ring Head Gasket is designed as a direct replacement for BMW part #11127835918 specifically for use in the S54 inline-six engines. 

Standard OEM & MLS gaskets can only handle a certain amount of cylinder pressures before they start to leak, making the SCE Cut Ring Head Gasket the recommended choice for applications making 16+ psi.

A compression leak passing the head gasket can cause a range of issues, including engine overheating, loss of power, misfires, and in severe cases, catastrophic engine failure.

Athena's gasket is crafted with premium quality reinforced M0115, an asbestos-free material that's original equipment approved and renowned for its superior quality. The AISI 304 stainless steel Cooper Rings bite into the aluminum head, providing maximum sealing capabilities around the cylinder bore and optimizing engine performance, even on engines with nitrous and/or turbo applications that exceed 2 bar boost.

Before installation, it is crucial to have the mating surfaces of the cylinder head and block professionally cleaned and resurfaced to ensure they are completely flat.

Cut Ring Installation Instructions:

  1. Make sure that the engine block and cylinder head surfaces are clean, flat, and free from any debris, oil, or coolant.

  2. Install the Cut Ring gasket on the engine block and ensure that it is properly aligned. Avoid twisting or bending the gasket during installation.

  3. Place the cylinder head on top of the gasket and install the head bolts or studs in their correct positions.

  4. Follow the manufacturer's recommended torque specifications and tighten the bolts or studs in the proper sequence to ensure even clamping force across the gasket.

  5. After the initial tightening, re-torque the head bolts or studs after the engine has been started and then allowed to cool to room temperature. This will ensure that the gasket is properly seated and compressed.

  6. It is NOT recommended to use any additional sealant on the gasket, as it is already coated with a Viton rubber sealant. Using additional sealant can hinder the performance of the gasket.

MLS Head Gasket:

This Cometic MLS Head Gasket is specifically engineered to replace BMW part #11127835918 for the S54 commonly found in E46 M3 and E36/7 Z3 M Roadster, Z4 M Coupe and Roadster, and E46 M3 CSL.

Multi-Layer Steel also known as "MLS" head gaskets are preferred as an aftermarket alternative for high-performance BMW engines, including supercharged and turbocharged models, as they offer better performance than factory gaskets.

The S54 engines have a stock bore of 87 mm and a stock gasket thickness of 0.027 inches. 

MLS Gaskets provide maximum sealing performance for high-output engines, without the need for sealants. These gaskets resist shearing forces and reduce bore distortion with their embossing design.

Comprised of multiple layers of stainless steel, they are durable and corrosion-resistant. Ideal for high-performance engines, MLS head gaskets offer superior sealing and can withstand high levels of heat and pressure.

When choosing an MLS gasket for your BMW, ensure compatibility, thickness, and bore size, and follow installation and torque specifications to avoid engine damage.

MLS head gaskets can NOT be used with motors that have O-rings or receiver grooves around the cylinder bores because they require smooth and flat surfaces to seal.

MLS Installation Instructions:

  1. Make sure that the engine block and cylinder head surfaces are clean, flat, and free from any debris, oil, or coolant.

  2. Install the MLS gasket on the engine block and ensure that it is properly aligned. Avoid twisting or bending the gasket during installation.

  3. Place the cylinder head on top of the gasket and install the head bolts or studs in their correct positions.

  4. Follow the manufacturer's recommended torque specifications and tighten the bolts or studs in the proper sequence to ensure even clamping force across the gasket.

  5. After the initial tightening, re-torque the head bolts or studs after the engine has been started and then allowed to cool to room temperature. This will ensure that the gasket is properly seated and compressed.

  6. It is recommended to not use any additional sealant on the MLS gasket, as it is already coated with a Viton rubber sealant. Using additional sealant can hinder the performance of the gasket.

Head Stud Kit

The ARP 201-4303 head stud kit is custom-designed for the BMW S54 inline 6-cylinder engine and serves as a replacement for the BMW head bolts 11127831862 commonly found in E46 M3 and E36/7 Z3 M Roadster, Z4 M Coupe and Roadster, and E46 M3 CSL.

By installing ARP head studs on an S54 engine, you can enjoy several benefits, including increased clamping force and improved head gasket sealing, which can help prevent head gasket failure. This is especially crucial for high-performance, supercharged, or turbocharged engines, where increased cylinder pressure can place extra stress on the head gasket and bolts.

The ARP 201-4303 head stud kit in ARP2000 material boasts a tensile strength of 220,000 psi.

Head Stud Kit Installation Instructions: 

1. To ensure proper thread engagement and accurate torque readings, clean ALL threads in the block. Chase if necessary with ARP Thread Chaser.
2. Clean and inspect all hardware prior to installation. Look for obvious defects or shipping damages, plus proper fit, length and dimension.
3. If the cylinder head studs protrude into a water jacket, lubricate the block threads of the studs with ARP THREAD SEALER.
4. Screw studs into the block “HAND TIGHT ONLY.”
5. Install the cylinder head(s) and check for binding or misalignment.
6. Lubricate the stud threads, nuts and washers with ARP ULTRA-TORQUE FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT.
Then install the washers and the nuts onto the studs and tighten them hand tight.
ARP recommends using the ARP ULTRA-TORQUE FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT that is provided with each kit as opposed to motor oil. This is due to higher friction on the studs as well as inconsistencies in the clamping force of the fasteners when motor oil or other low quality lubricants are used.
