Mazda B-Series 2.3L 1996-1997, Intake Manifold Gasket Set by Magnum Gasket®. Magnum's Gasket engineers have utilized their many years of engine sealing experience to select the right technology choice for each of the Intake Manifold Gaskets Sets currently offered in the Magnum Gasket line-up. Many late model engines have separate lower and upper (plenum) intake manifolds. The lower manifold gaskets seal the manifold against the cylinder head port surface, similar to older models. The upper manifold (plenum) must also be sealed top and bottom. Most Magnum Intake Manifold Gasket Sets for late model vehicles include lower and upper manifold gaskets, but there are exceptions due to differing repair practices for particular engines. Consult the Magnum eCatalog and package set contents listings for complete details. For many years, manifold gasket requirements were pretty straightforward for the cast iron 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines that ruled America's roads. However, manifold gaskets for most late model vehicles must work under much more demanding operating conditions. The introduction of aluminum and bi-metal (aluminum/cast iron) engines placed more thermal stress and strain on gaskets. Todays' fuel injected engines with nylon-filled plastic manifolds and separate intake plenums created new sealing challenges that demand much more sophisticated molded gasket designs and greater chemical resistance. Extended life anti-freeze, containing OAT (Organic Acid Technology) coolants, has played a controversial role in creating more severe duty cycles for intake manifold gaskets, once again upping the ante for sophistication of gasket designs and quality of materials.
