intake manifold is messed up, need help picking another

So I was loosening the thermo bolts and one broke, tried drilling and taping and it didnt work out as I planned so I tried epoxying a stud in place and it's slightly leaking right now. I'm fed up with it so I'm just going with a new manifold, but I'd like some suggestions.
My engine is a 409 sbc, 10.5:1 compression, Brodix T1X heads, Crower hydraulic roller cam 0.576 intake w/ 236 duration .564 exhaust w/ 244 duration and 114 separation, I have a 3.9 gear, 4500 stall, turbo 400 trans, 28" tires. It is my street car but I barely drive it so I dont care if it's hard to drive. I had a Weiand Stealth intake manifold on it before, but I was looking for a intake manifold with a 4-corner water boss system because I tend to overheat. Any suggestions?

I would think any intake along that line would work fine. The Edelbrock performer RPM, The Weiand Stealth, Performer RPM Air Gap, Stealth Air Strike, A Holley Street Dominator as well as a few others. I do not recommend any professional products intakes, while the price tag reflects a attractive buy, you get what you pay for, and the case in these intakes it`s made in china out of odd material junk. I have a weiand stealth intake for sale. The water neck holes do need to be heli coiled, but I can have that done or you could, whichever, it don`t cost much, around $7 a piece. The intake has been blasted in a machine and looks new and it has maybe about 20,000 miles of usage on it.
The heating issue could be caused by many things, and I doubt the 4 corner cooling will help it any. I would find out why it was overheating the way it is as many cars with engines just as hot as yours run cool on the street. I would think the 4500 stall has alot to do with it as the engine has to work in the upper rpm ranges to get the car moving so it gets hot. Many other factors could be causing it as well.
