I don't believe that will work. That's a MLS.

An o-ring needs a maleable surface to press into. Which is a copper gasket.

You may ruin the o-ring if you use an MLS and torque it down onto that o-ring.

You are correct it is a mls gasket yes. It accually does not ruin the o rings itself
Alot of people run mls head gaskets with o rings and is accually recommended by some of the best subaru shops in the US

And any wire will cocentrate the clamp load making a better seal. Many people use a copper oring with an mls gasket so something deforms. The phusions are near because they have a gas filled wire already in them. The gas in the wire makes them compressible. If the head lifts the oring will be able to grow a bit and maintain seal.

Little update now since the car has been running. Put up on the dyno and we maxed out my single walbro 450 intank pump. Car put out just shy of 600 whp at 485 tq. The car is no were near its full potential at this power level but just cant push it more with my fuel setup. This winter i plan on adding a surge tank along with dss axles all around with a triple disk clutch. Then we should be able to make some real power.
