Outlaw Engineering ThermoBlok spacers are thermal insulating replacements for your stock intake manifold and throttlebody gaskets. Made from a heat blocking phenolic laminate, ThermoBlok spacers increase power from your engine by keeping the intake cooler.

Key benefits:

» Produces a cooler intake manifold and intake charge resulting in MORE POWER
» A cooler intake charge also reduces the tendency for
detonation, meaning ignition timing can be advanced for
MORE POWER
» Almost invisible modification, looks stock for the stealth factor
» Better gas mileage
» Replaces stock gaskets
» Reusable over and over
» No undesirable side effects

Better gas mileage

Wouldn't this decrease fuel mileage? I know a lot of fuel mileage nuts have "hot air intakes" with an intake tract that takes air from around the exhaust manifold, which raises MPG. Hell, some even replace the resistor in the IAT sensor, but that only works with certain kinds.

Colder intake air = more oxygen density. More oxygen, or air, necessitates more fuel otherwise it will obviously run lean. The ECU won't allow this and will inject more fuel to make up for the excess intake. I am already starting to notice an increase in my MPG now that winter is starting to give way to spring. The reason colder intake air is better for performance is the reason why it will lower your mpg. Even my D16 Civic produces a discernable amount of torque when it's cold outside compared to warm weather.

I have seen that the Hondata intake manifold gasket gives about 5 more whp to basic Honda 4 cylinders. I would imagine that this will produce a few hp, but I just can't stand when advertisements lie about increasing your MPG. The only way I can see this happening, is if you can modify the IAT to make it
"sense" the intake air is very hot, while the air is actually cooler because of the gasket. But that will produce dangerously lean A/F mixtures.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Their site contradicts their installation instructions that state that the spacer should be on top of the stock gasket.

This is assuming that a "CAI" actually produces dramatically colder air than a stock air box, which is not true when the vehicle is in motion. Its main benefit is reducing the flow restrictions in the OEM airbox.
