Post subject:  Thermal intake manifold gasket

hi guys, anyone has used or installed this gasket? PTFE or phenolic? :huh:

The theory says :idea: "For every 3.3 °C rise in intake temperature, air density drops by 1%. The hotter the air entering your engine, the less fuel the computer injects to compensate for reduced oxygen.

Thermal Intake Manifold Gaskets reduce air intake temperatures by removing the direct contact between the throttle body and intake manifold surfaces where heat soak usually occurs. The PTFE thermo plastic has unique thermal resistant properties which standard gaskets simply dont have.

An intake temperature drop of around 10 degrees C is expected when using these gaskets on a road driven engine, which is good for around 3 percent power increase.Better results can be expected with track driven applications where heat soak is much more noticeable between pit stops"

thanks

i dont care about those cool theory but... do you know about the result?

As I found the dyno at https://honda-tech.com/forums/honda-civ ... g-2628596/

not impressive... and I know that the gasket is not enough to cool down the intake manifold... so you would want to spray whole the block, intake and exhaust maniforld, and other with "ceramic coating" to cool much better. It's not cheap tho.

I think the hoses purposely carrying engine coolant to the throttle body and intake are going to defeat that gasket pretty easily.
