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 Gaskets reduce air intake temperatures by removing the direct contact between the cylinder head 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.

Protects against heat soak and reduces the incoming air temperature before it reaches the cylinder head.
