    Cooling a riva head more?

    I have a riva girdled head. I heard you can drill and tap another hole in the head to be more efficiant. I heard water sometimes gets trapped in "dead zones" and never reciculates. Please help i included a picture.

    head

    i had a stock head from group-k that had a water bypass added to the number two cylinder . seemed like the fitting was close to the head stay near the pipe . check with " quadzilla " he has the head now and can send you some pics.

    Head is on my 97 so I cant take any pics.
    Head has a top cover then the main body with 3 removable domes take it apart and you can see where the void or cavity would be drill it so you clear the dome and in a cavity.

    So many ways to run dual cooling without beeing there hands on I dont want to guess might steer you wrong.

    Most likely you can just dump the water overboard though..........
