MLS = Multi Layered Steel Available for 2nd Gen 3S-GTE applications in 1.2mm thickness. This is the head gasket of choice at ATS Racing.

I think i'll have to shave the head.

I've choose the standard size MLS head gasket.

I hope i don't have to replace it.

Because the metal gasket is less pliable, the head needs to be skimmed to ensure good seal.

Anyone who had leaking problems with a multilayer head gasket?

If yes, how did you resolve the situation?
