What if we were to connect these two together? Wouldn't that give increased cooling efficiency to the rear of the head? Would there be any downsides to this? All you would have to do is get a 3/4" metal "T" connector and a bit of hose to make it work. Give me some feedback!

I don't see why not.
You are exposing more hose to more heat however. So, you might have more surface area to fail in the future. Use good silcone based hoses if you do this, and it should hold up pretty good. (Wrap them in thermal tape, or cover the hoses with sleve, and you would save the hoses too.)
Later and good luck.

Both those two you refer to get the coolant from the same source, so in my opinion it is a waste of time... aight peace :chicken:

No point you're hose is connected on the other side

Thats just where you would connect if you had a JDM engine.. (mine) since I forgot to block it before i put it in..

i used duplicolor metalcast, which holds up quite well. My valve covers are real dirty though.

ahhh fuck yeah! thats same shit im using! ok im offically happy now! how did you prep the covers? right now the ones im planning on using are semi polished..so im gonna clean them up primer them and then use the blue color....hope the primer can withstand the heat?? or does it matter as long as the blue color holds?

i didn't use primer,i scuffed it up and i used duplicolor adhesion promoter, which seemed to work pretty good.

If I am Correct, The Dupli color metalcast paint he is speaking of is Anodized blue, and can resist heat upto 600 degress, If I'm not mistaking, if you really want a cool look, get the high heat chrome, scuff the surface, paint it with the chrome, then the anodized blue, mmmmmmmmm what an awesome color.

I used the same stuff on my NA's valve covers. I put a few more coats on though so it was a bit darker. It seems to last really well.

On those two connections, if you came off one with a long heater hose, then mount a small transmission cooler down under the car, then return up to the other connection, that would add the extra cooling capacity you seek.
