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

Re: 2011 Sti Build ?

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.
