When I had my 302 in my car ever thing was kept pretty cool. There wasn't much heat on the intake. When I swaped my cleveland the intake will burn your fingers and I have had problems with vapor lock/HOT gas. Is it because windsors have water running through their intake, allowing the intake to be cooled off ? And clevelands water neck is on the block? Woulnd't the windsors design be better for cooling? If so , why wouldn't ford use the water through the manny design when they built the c-town's? Guy's got any input on this? Thanks.

theres a baffle underneath the intake to keep hot oil off. My car with 11 to 1 doesn't get hot. If I try to drive my car when it's in the thirties it will back fire though the intake and exhaust. It don't get enough heat untill I let it sit and the heat soak in. Even a windsor will burn your hand when running.
