A gasket is compressed between the engine block and the cylinder head. The gasket seals the internal combustion and keeps coolant and oil from mixing. Your OE gaskets are not built to withstand the high heat and pressure your performance engine produces. Performance Gaskets are made from a higher quality material which can include embossed steel, graphite, copper, or multilayer steel. Depending on your specific needs, the gasket you need can vary.
