Hi.

I have a Torker II lower intake that comes with the Mass-Flo system and I would like to use one of the ports in the back water channel to feed the heater.

Can I do this, or will it affect any flow through the heads and block and cause some problems?

Thanks,

Olivier

well.

using the tstat housing for the sensor would be not so good, because it's behind the tstat itself on the radiator side.
So, before the tstat opens you won't get the right reading to the computer... :confused:

I did talk to Chris and he suggested the normal installation. That's what he does in his cars.

I would prefer to have one line coming from the back of the engine, it keeps the rest cleaner with less hoses on the intake / valve covers.
Just looks cleaner to me.

Who would know if it can cause damage to a 302 engine if some of the cooling water is diverted from the back channel connecting both cylinder heads?

Very good!

No problems with the engine? Gaskets blown, or so? ;) :D

Thanks for all the tips and answers.
