Question How Can I Eliminate Heat Soak?

I've heard you can get heat preventative gaskets like these ones from hondata http://www.hondata.com/heatshieldgasket.html to help prevent heat soak. Is there any other type of heat preventative gasket out there for different parts other than the intake manifold or anything else that would help?

there is the hondata and p2r gasket and there is this wrap you put around your intake and headers from getting headsoak and insulate them

Outlaw Engineering has a kit which contains the gaskets for the throttle body and intake manifold. Just do a search for it there are pictures on the install around.

I wonder if there are any drawbacks to wrapping the precats on our cars?

It does get mighty hot under the hoods indeed!

The common issue with wraps is that they can collect moisture and hold it against metal parts causing them to corrode faster.

CATs on the other hand have a minimum operating temperature that should not be forced to run cooler or they won't do their job.

but doesn't wrapping the stuff keep the heat in?

I would think it doesn't make the cat run cooler, if anything it'll keep the heat in and make it run hotter = faster moving exhaust gases

then again, I know the OEM cats have deterioration issues - maybe wrapping them will compound this issue

Realize, all these measures only prolong how long heatsoak takes to occur, they will not prevent it, after a certain amount of time running and driving, the motor is going to get heatsoaked, it just may take a slight bit longer with the gaskets.

Fan Switch


Haven't gotten around to installing it since didn't find a matching valve yet. The mugen thermostat valve is like highway robbery.

Anybody have a part number and store for a matching valve, hint hint.

if u want to avoid heatsoak, just drive.

the amount of airflow going into your car will almost completely negate all "hot air" that is sitting there...

but if u want to you can get outlaw gaskets for your IM and IM spacers...

hmmm more info on the mugen parts?

I assume the fan switch turns the fan on earlier? and the thermostat opens earlier too?

will the Hondata or P2R gaskets fit with aftermarket parts? I plan to get a Skunk2 intake manifold and 70mm throttle body for the K24. will it affect anything? And i will be doing my research on the mugen fan switch and see if i can find any that will fit our 7th gen K24's

I've done a little bit of research on these fan switches. They activate at 80 degrees rather than the stock 93 degrees This particular fan switch is for the H-series engines, Mugen does have a fan switch for the K24, but it is the Kk24a2 otherwise known as the TSX engine. I'm not 100% sure if this will fit out 7th gen accords, but I'm guessing it should since we fall under the K-series category. I want to know if anyone else has successfully done this mod.

You need to get it cut to size. as for the intake manifold y skunk2? if you have a k24 you should know it would be of no use unless you can rev pass 7k, and you will lose a lot of low end tq since those are designed for top end power. The 70mm tb is way over kill unless you have head work done. You will see like 1-2 hp gain for something that cost 400 bucks. If you have a k24 and need the gasket I know someone and can get you all 3. The injector base to the block, injoector base to the intake manifold and intake manifold to the tb. That should minimize 90% of all the heat soak when you put the pedal down you should receive air around ambient temperature. So if its like 50*F outside and you smash it you will take in 50*F air +- 10*F since the coolent line in the Tb heats up the air.

Also the gasket only work when you are at high rpm. The stuff will not give you power at low rpm for DD.

as for the wrap they are right it will hold moisture. You are better off having everything ceramic coated.
