Re: manifold heatsink?

	I agree that a Heat shield is needed to keep the intake charge
temp from being affected by the EM.  But WHat about using both a shield
and a heat sink.  A heat sink could help to protect the EM from cracking,
couldn't it.  Put a large Aluminum heatsink on, or steel for that matter
but Al would be better, and let it keep the EM temps down.  Or would that
hurt performance by reducing exhaust velocity by cooling the air?  I guess
that would bring us back to the ceramic coating thread.
	Arghh, am I talking in circles.  I plan on doing an MC swap into
my 4kq and am sure the EM is cracked on the MC I am buying.  Do I weld it,
upgrade to 2 piece, or buy Dynalynx.  How much are those anyhow, anyone
	Ok, I am done babbling.  L8R
