TOLEDO, Ohio (Jan. 13)—Dana Corp. will supply its "Wave-stopper" multi-layered steel cylinder head gaskets for Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.'s new 5.6L V-8 engine. The new module will power Nissan's 2004 full-size Titan pickup as well as an upcoming, full-size sport utility vehicle. Unlike traditional MLS gaskets which have been constructed of a folded layer, an embossed spacer layer, a welded shim or a combination of multiple, folded layers, the Wave-stopper has a unique embossment in selected gasket layers to provide a "precisely controlled stopper action" to seal the combustion chamber, Dana said.
