Is the Felpro a multi-layer metal gasket like the OEM?

Yes. If I recall correctly the Felpro is a 3 layer while the OEM is a 4 layer, on the NA anyway. My memory might be lying to me though. I think my final gasket ended up being a Felpro. Surely cheaper than OEM.

Thanks guys.

Now I wonder why the FEL-PRO PermaTorqueMLS gaskets have 2 different part numbers between the 2002 (VVT) and the 2000 (NB non VVT):

2000
FEL-PRO Part # 9717PT
$59.99



2002:
FEL-PRO Part # 26234PT
$32.79
