Re: Intake manifold gaskets

They're talking about the insulating silicon ones (eg. Hondata) that help prevent heat transfer from the head.

Not sure how much they help, but I can't see how they could hurt. If for whatever reason I was removing the IM I would definitely use such a gasket when I put it back. Wouldn't bother pulling things apart just to add one though.

Re: Intake manifold gaskets

I think COMETIC also makes one like the Hondata one. I have seen posts on other sites though where these insulating gaskets created a vacuum leak so they had to stack an OEM one on top of it (double gasketing).

Re: Intake manifold gaskets

Maybe you are thinking of Cometic head gaskets? As for the leak, could have been a cheap non Hondata one.

thats why I was asking because Ill be swaping my motor soon, so it would be very simple to drop the gasket in. so you guys would only buy the cometic or hondata ones?

Re: Intake manifold gaskets

Well for the head gasket I would go with OEM or Cometic. For the IM, yeah Hondata over some cheap imitation.
