Thermal intake gaskets, provided by Powergaskets, offer an array off performance and others benefits. We have been supplying our gasket solutions to both road and track customers for over 10 years so you can be assured that you will receive a tried, tested and quality product everytime.
Performance. The materials used in our gaskets are extremely temperature resistant and as such this means that heat transfer from the engine head to the inlet is significantly reduced. By lowering inlet temperatures this results in colder and denser air, bettering the combustion rate and consequently delivering more power. Essentially this gasket can help prevent loss of performance seen through increased intake temperatures. On some vehicles, especially turbo applications, this can make a significant difference to your power output.
Lifespan/Durability. Our gaskets aren't affected by fuel/oil or strong vibrations which can be caused by performance exhausts, high revving, etc. This means that in the majority of instances the part(s) will far out live the life of an OEM item.
Reuseable. The gasket(s) can be removed and refitted, even after being used for months due to the good sealing properties of the material(s) used. This is a strong attribute, particularly for cars where the inlet manifold has to be removed to access important and often regular serviceable parts, such as coil packs, spark plugs, etc.
Direct Replacement. Whereas a lot of performance parts mean you have to change another part of your OEM setup, we design our gaskets to be, wherever possible, a direct replacement. This means they are only as hard to fit as the standard item, and means there is no hidden, additional expense. Even on our thickest gaskets designed for ITBs, the only hardware change required are longer bolts/studs.

Fact: For every 3.3 °C (5° F) rise in intake temperature, air density drops 1%. The hotter the air, the less fuel the computer injects to compensate for reduced oxygen.
