Default Intake gasket

When a Intake gasket blows out ,does it suck in or blow out? I am talking more about the front or back. Thanks in advance

A real violent backfire will blow them outward.
Long decelerations with a tightly sealed cylinder can suck 'em inward.

With proper crush and PARALLEL surfaces and a SKIM of sealer that is allowed to set before use, this should never happen. If the surfaces are NOT parallel, the gasket will have more tendency to squeeze out the 'big' end whether going outbound or inbound.

If you are running a vacuum pump, it will suck in. If not, the crankcase pressure will cause it to push oill out. The only thing I use on the ends to seal the intake after make sure it and the block are clean of any oil/water is Right Stuff from peratex.
