Chapel Hill, NC -January 23,2006… NewSouth Performance, LLC has enhanced its PowerGasket line with the PowerGasket Plus that improves performance and ease of installation over earlier versions. Using a composite material that is specifically designed for gasket applications, the PowerGasket Plus has a significantly higher continuous operating temperature and does not require the application of any extra sealant.
PowerGasket Plus gives you up to 5% more power from your engine by reducing the temperature of the incoming air to your engine with an insulating gasket that radically reduces the heat transfer from the cylinder head to the intake manifold. This gives you cooler, denser air for more horsepower and performance from your engine.
The PowerGasket Plus conducts on average less than 1/500th of the heat of the steel gasket that it replaces. Your intake manifold will stay 30-50° F cooler and your incoming air will stay 20-30° F cooler.
Cooler air, denser air, means more oxygen. Your engine sensors register these changes and will inject more fuel to give you more power. Cooler air also reduces detonation, so you can turn up the boost or advance your engine timing for even more performance gains.
PowerGasket Plus has been designed for affordability, easy installation and no disruption to your manifold attachment and engine accessories. This means that you can simply swap your old intake manifold gasket for a PowerGasket. No buying longer bolts or installing multiple gaskets. In less than 2 hours, you will be enjoying a more powerful, better performing ride.
Tested in an 800 HP, 40 PSI turbo environment, the PowerGasket Plus is rugged enough for most automotive applications.
PowerGasket Plus are available for large and small port 1.8T engines for Audis and Volkswagens and for 2.0L 8v crossflow Volkswagen engines.
