Richard, I would be real interested in details on that setup! The 6-71 on the flathead will generate some (LOTS!) heat, and I'd like a better solution than the chiller.

 671 on a flathead who would do such a thing? Just kidding been running a 671 blown flathead for a long time now with the proper amount of coolant capacity engine temps are not an issue.  Running an intercooler would lower the intake temps a lot and help generate more power as well.

ronnieroadster, this is a 4.625 stroke, 366 CID Caddy engine, that we will be putting about 14 PSI boost to, and the exhaust exits the top of the engine very close to the intake.

I'm pretty sure intake temp may be an issue-I have a BDS chiller style intercooler, but am looking for an even better way! grin

I have been watching your project develop with the Cad flathead I enjoy your  back yard Hot Rod solutions and developments as you progress along. The Cad cetainly has a different problem compared to what we Ford flathead guys have to deal with. My experimentation with different ways and locations to inject cooling water into the flathead Ford block has been a slow learning curve.

    My thoughts if I was trying to run the flathead Cad I would come up with a water over exhaust system similar to a boat exhaust. Having a dedicated water tank and pump just to pull the heat out of the exhaust. Certainly not an easy build but heck on any project like this whats ever easy?
