I swapped my small block with a big block and now I would like to know how the heater hoses should be routed, does a 454 need to have the little bypass hose from the intake to the water pump? This is a roughly 600hp build that didn’t have a water pump on it and a plug in the intake, I got a Milodon pump and it has 2 fitting holes, so I’m curious what do do.

Looking around, It appears if you drill a couple 3/16" holes in the stat to allow fluid to bypass, it should be fine, I even read some stuff that says if you have a heater core connected, that should be all that needed, I'm going to try the holes and see what happens.
