I've always seen gaskets be used, but not these. Since the fuel pump rides on the side of the engine they get a blast of constant air when the vehicle is moving down the road. I can see how a heat shield would be a good idea but it's not going to help power any. Make sure you lube the spring area of the pump before you install it.
