    Here is a video going over some details about Mazdaspeed intake manifold gaskets and why I developed the Super TIG -

    In my opinion this is the only intake gasket that should ever be considered for your speed and I hope you agree with me.

    We make these for the stock intake manifold, single runner manifolds & for the throttle body flange.

    Our gaskets are better insulators than ptfe / teflon and will not leak.


    Don't forget to visit www.adaptedperformance.com when you are done with the video to read more about our gaskets and to place an order for your own Super Tig

    Had the pleasure of helping Neganox put one of these in his Mazda before he sold it. They are indeed very nice gaskets. They dont flop around while installing and the material is kind of soft feeling for a tighter seal.

    I have this gasket on my car. Have to say it really is quality and worth the money.

    And steve is awesome. The first one he sent me got lost in the mail, and he shipped out out super fast to me to replace it. Gotta love good customer service.

    I get that he’s a one man show. Even an update on the page would be nice.

    Guys, Steve has been out on medical for a few months. I chatted with him when some kids in a Failbook group were roasting him for a slow shipment while in the hospital. He is indeed a 1 man show. He is slowly getting back into it though.

    It’s allll good. Anyone who does all that by themselves is doing more than most of us. Just happy he offers the product. Good things are worth waiting for.

    So not quite certain when these will be back in stock. So my question is: how bad is PTFE? This is the last piece of my puzzle to start putting intake back together.

    So it’s either wait for X days, get PTFE, or use OEM. I did watch Steve’s vid so I do know why he isn’t a PTFE fan but...I’m just anxious.

    PTFE is fine. You just have to be careful not to scratch up, twist, or kink the gasket. It will seal, but with time and heat it will leak.

    Get a PTFE for now and be happy. Once these gaskets get back on stock, then buy one for the next install on your car.

    So that fancy TIG page has been removed. I wonder if he just gave up and said fuck it. Guess I won’t have to check the page daily anymore.

    Sorry for my absence on the forms and being out of the loop for so long. I have had a rough last 6 months or so with some health issues and just have been exhausted physically and mentally.

    I'm happy to say that I am running at about 95% efficiency the past few days.


    Update on gaskets.

    I took down the listing as I was unsure of a new timeline and I was way behind on responding to emails and requests for info that I frankly did not have an answer to.

    The good news.

    I have more raw material supposed to arrive on the 20th. We will have gaskets in about 10 days from that point.

    The gaskets will be discounted for 2 weeks once we have them in stock as an apology for the delay.

    Things will be back on track for me in the next week or two and I will even be launching new items.

    Thanks for your continued support.
