As some of you may already know, keeping the heat out of the inlet of a force fed motor will help with not only power and economy but also help lower inlet temps and less chance of motor damage.
Purefuel (mark) from here has made up some inlet manifold thermo insulating gaskets.
I've been using one on my ep71 now for a long time and its held up perfect.
Also have had some other members test them and give some feedback.
What I found was my inlet manifold itself was a lot cooler.
So cool in fact that it took a while to heat up even in traffic.
The manifold stays a whole heap cooler than stock setup and never gets hotter than you can keep your hand on.
There made of 3.5mm heat proof sheet and are individually milled out and finished by hand. These are not laser or water cut.
The use of these materials are not a new invention and are common in two stroke motors and performance carburettor fed cars where heat can cause fuel to evaporate before it enters the cylinder and cause the mixtures to lean out.
Why would you need it? Prob the same reason u run an intercooler.
Fitment is easy and fit on without modification to the length of factory bolts and studs.
