Nice looking intake. Doesn't it need a water port between the #3 and #4 intake runner?

Actually, I was more concerned with keeping the head cool. I have cracked a couple of Marnal heads between the valve seats over the past ten years due the too much heat in the center of the head. Not trying to be critical of your intake, because it appears to be one the more quality intakes I've seen, along with some nice injectors.

Water moves pretty fast in there, and cooling diagram shows it traveling back to the block it doesn't  just sit there.

You are right Dave. For a street car you need to have a form of bypass otherwise you will have issues. Most gatos are on race cars with no tstat.

I have had a gato intake on a street driven quest for a few years now, no issues. I threaded a barbed fitting on the intake flanged for the coolant bypass. Also, a Mezier inline thermostat is used.
