Hi,
Sorry, no pics as the top end is off the motor (off season here), but what we do have is a Jegs filler neck with a large side port (blocked off) and two rear ports that are plumbed with -8 lines back to the rear corner cooling outlets on the manifold (HV1000), front two cooling outlets in manifold are plugged. The neck has a small outlet for the overflow. No thermostat. I don't think hot spots are a big problem, as when we drained the fluid at the end of the season it was still brand new, no brown gunk at all and the bores, pistons and heads are all perfect. I think the fluid would move about a bit when the engine is running from vibration and heat pressure anyway.

Go with a Scirroco (SP) type radiator in case you ever decide to double enter. A smaller radiator will also save you on fuel usage.

Run 2 classes, or entered twice into the same class.

The Scirroco radiator is what I ran in my Beretta, with a single shrouded fan. Never had any issues keeping it cool, even racing in 110* weather. 406 sb, Injected on alky w/ a Kinsler high speed leanout. Hot lapping, double entrys ... childs play.

**** ALWAYS run the water pump to circulate the water, even while warming it up. The fan is used only to modulate the water temp. I aways staged with the water temp at 175-180. At the end of the pass, the water temp had increased 10 to 15 degrees as I was turning onto the return road. This is perfect. Sometimes I had the fan running at the starting line and on the pass, sometimes I didn't. Just depended on how long it took my opponent to get staged. Didn't make any difference in the ET. For those times that I didn't have the fan running at the starting line, as soon as I crossed the F.L., I turned it on.

Would be possible to run a b&m Trans cooler for a radiator? The one that comes with the small fan and thermal switch. Fan kicks on at 175* and thought about doubling up. Sbf going to use the 1/2 npt with braided line.

My opinion would be to install a small car radiator ... like the Scirroco. They come with plastic tanks and hardly weigh anything. What they do offer is capacity to cool w/ the right fan. Which is more important to me than weight.

It would be about half the size of what Sean and me are running!
