Funk Cool heat reflection tape is used to protect intake components and therefore lowering your intake temperatures. Lower intake temperatures create more efficiency in the combustion chamber and therefore a more powerful and more efficient engine running cycle. Funk cool gold heat reflection tape is for ensuring that delicate components such as fuel cells, ECUs, heat shields and bulkheads are working at their maximum without the chance of damage due to excessive heat.
But why Gold? Why not any other reflective surface? Copper? Silver? Glass? Gold is scientifically proven to have the best reflective qualities and therefore reflects away the maximum levels of heat. Funk Cool Gold Reflective Heat Tape is capable of reflecting away about 80% of all heat.

Yes, gold has a higher temperature tolerance than silver, so gold is the better product but in most cases it is more expensive. Although silver has lower temperature tolerances than gold, some would argue that silver has a higher aesthetic appeal and it is certainly a more cost effective solution.
