I'm stunned to find out that the FB engine doesn't incorporate a semi enclosed deck! After all the problems that subaru has had with head gasket leaks, I thought sure that they would eliminate the problem once and for all.
Nevertheless, subaru did install the MLS gasket in the 2010 legacy, and I assume that they also installed an MLS gasket in the FB engines. It's probable that the MLS gasket will eliminate the HG leaks. Still, I just can't believe that subaru let a small saving in engine manufacture jeopardise their reputation.
