The stock Intake Manifold Gasket is very thin (.010" or .25mm) and made of metal. This allows a tremendous amount of heat to be transferred to the Intake Manifold. As the Intake Manifold heats up, the Intake Air Charge is also heated; leading to a loss of power. The CT Engineering Heat Resistant Intake Manifold Gasket is much thicker (.134" or 3.40mm) and made of Synthetic Fiber Nitrile Binder. This Gasket has better sealing properties (less chance of leaks), and transfers less heat to the Intake Manifold than other competing Gaskets.

This gasket is rather expensive as an item to ship individually, the price will come down in price when we have it here for stocking, or can be discounted if shipped with other CT-E products.
