Oh yeah, that's true too.  I could have wrote second-worst case, depending on how you look at it.

Seeing as how it can get 115f and hotter here in the summer, and I want to have a/c pumping at the same time, I want all the cooling possible, and certainly not less than designed, since I plan to pump more heat than was designed into it.

Once we as a community get good at modding 7A heads to 3B spec, then we can start bandsawing and rotating the stock intake manifolds to get rid of the extra 3' or so of intake tract.
