Like the manifold? No.

Some throttile bodies have a by pass 3 prong on it for the PCV , but nope. None of them are cooled.

No coolant cools the manifold but there is coolant in the coolant crossover tube which is part of the intake manifold. Basically the part where the thermostat goes.

Thanks..I'm trying to track some tricky codes that I think are leading to an intake leak. Back to your build though. I don't want to clutter things up

Only thing I plan doing to my heads are having them surfaced, 3 angle valve job, cleaned pressure tested and gasket matching the intake runners and porting the exhaust runners. I dont plan to mess with the intake as it is weirdly shaped and can really affect performance. I'll be N/A until I can find a 05-06 Gt500 Lower manifold.

Shes finally home. I'm thinking I want to put new valves in with a 3 angle valve job, get them cleaned, then resurfaced.

Gonna have to call and get some estimates first. For now ill start with painting it and installing the oil pump and pan. Thats for another day though.

Hey could your measure deck height for me? I'm looking at running a similar setup but with boost and e85. Wanna see what compression ration it will be at with flat tops with a .030" overbore.
