Default Intake manifold gasket question.

I just recently got an aluminum manifold for my 5T.
It came with thick teflon gaskets (spacers?) instead of regular gaskets.
What's the deal with these? Are they better? Should I use them?
Or should I just stick with regular gaskets?

the teflon gaskets work good, they can be reused many times.
i dont think a paper gasket would fit on most billet intake manifolds except for the ada brand.

As already stated.... Use the Teflon. It is a great insulator and gasket in one and can be reused.

Make sure the small hole in the manifold and the gaskets go to the bottom. That is the pulse port hole to make your carb pump fuel. As Carlos said they are great gaskets. Another thing to watch is that the olts to hold your carb on are not too long. Sometimes they poke thru the manifold and can damage the sealing surface on the cylinder.
