    Default blown alchohol water plumbing question

    I am running a 496 with a 871 inj with alcohol , I have searched all over this site to find water plumbing info. Any thoughts on the best way to set it up. Running a 87 cheyenne with no water to the headers. Wondering about running a reg and or bypass, seem to be alot of opinions out there but nothing really as far as my situation. Thanks, Chris
    At the end of the day do u really wanna be seen driving a wacker?

    Are running copper head gaskets? Out of the pump, thru a regulater, into the front of the block, with 2 dumps out of the front of the intake ,overboard. An alcohol engine is going to run cold any way so make sure you have good oil temp before getting on the throttle hard. Maybe look into a oil pan heater.
