Anyone got a good pic of a W5 cooling from the center plugs in the head? And did you see any temp drop or other gains?

A while back Ryan built an R3 dyno mule and had cooling plumbing to the centre exhaust ON THE BLOCK and had a hard time cheaping it warm.IIRC
Maybe he will chim in?
You can go to Moparchats.com and read all about the stock and modified smallblock cooling from 40ford.
Apparently hot oil, cool block = max hp Matt
