ats coolant return lines

Has anyone done it? Are they worth doing or just a waste have the heads off to do the studs and gaskets all ready.

Well I don't know how much this helps but, I basically asked where to get the coolant recirculation lines and I was informed that they really weren't worth the money. There is no proven data that this will even make a difference, and one guy mentioned the idea of drilling into his heads just didn't seem worth consequences of something going wrong. If anything did go wrong, you would be buying yourself some new heads.

I opted to stay away from this. Only because of the reaction I got from the other members.

I put coolant lines on my truck. I made my own because they are pretty much a couple of fittings and braided lines. I haven't noticed a difference in coolant temp's, but it was something I wanted to try. I mainly use my truck for towing so I thought it would be helpful to pull heat out of the head.

Coolant recirculation lines

We have used our own kit on every head job we do. ARP head studs , OEM gaskets, heads decked, and our recirculation lines, and have been problem free. Most of the trucks are 450 to 500 hp range, there are a couple at 600 to 700 hp and still stroken.

I made my own setup also. Chose to run mine under the intake to keep them out of sight. Didn't want more stuff running everywhere under the hood.
