Thermal gaskets

Many thanks to Mike at Ferriday Engineering for these

Ordered the exhaust and inlet thermal gaskets

http://www.ferriday.co.uk/gaskets/gaskets.shtml

From Mike for any that are interested
Cost for a Thermal Inlet Gasket is 43.00 in 5.0mm, or 53.00 in 7.0mm thickness, and the Thermal Exhaust Plate is 46.00. But bought together they are 79.00 and 89.00 respectively plus 5.50 P&P UK Mainland. Availability is usually within a few days.
The other item that is available is a TIG for the plenum, cost 34.00 if taken with the others.
All the best Allan,

I have something similar for the Hyundai's inlet manifold, except mine was made by OBX and is around 4mm. The actual thickness though will be close to 6/7mm when sandwiched between two OEM gaskets.

They work very well, or so I'm told - increasing the runner length shifts the torque curve to the left a tad and they do help keep plenum temps down. Will have it fitted this weekend once my gaskets arrive

Id be under the impression you'd want as much heat transfer from the head into the exhaust manifold as possible - but thats me.

Thermal gasket on the intake however makes absolute sense.

You get heat transfer back into the head from the zorst..

The head will still have coolant flow through it..

Will run it with the zorst thermal gasket and see how it does.. worst case senario I can always swap back to a normal gasket

Funny thing this. When I discussed them last time there was a heated debate that thermal transfer would never happen back into the head. I disagree with this especially on a modified (tuned) engine).
I do have some thermal gaskets somewhere, but I've never fitted them. I might have even given them to Jon when he bought my engine.
