killeratrod tony2bags welcome to Hotrodders. this post is over 2 years old .

tony2bags yes you are right, the tbi gaskets(felpro ms93317) only have a small hole at the end , they are not fully open, this is so the engine gets to ideal temp (94 degrees).
if the open type felpro 90314-1(carb) are put on a tbi engine it will never get hot enough and run rich, there is a temp sensor at front top of block, this tells the tbi to lean up the mix when 94 degrees, if the engine dosnt get this hot it will effect the whole system , map sensor, egr valve, o2 sensor etc etc...it will foul the plugs very quickly
i can tell you this from 1st hand experience.
im no expert but it makes sense the opposite is probably true and tbi gaskets on a carb engine would cause overheating.

If your heater circuit comes off the back of the head/intake then you need a gasket set that opens the rear coolant returns.

If your heater circuit comes off the front of the intake where the return collector is, then a gasket that blocks the rear returns would not be a problem.

The gaskets you now have are correct. I show the correct gasket set (<$20) to be:

Fel-Pro - Intake Manifold Gasket Set Part Number: MS93317

My Weiand inlet manifold has no waterways in the rear of it- so I presume it isnt important to running temperature.
Some intakes come plumbed (or are modified) so the rear head passages can be tapped into, this is so external coolant lines can be used.

This isn't necessary on most street-bound engines.

The rear passage in the head is there so it can be used on either side of the engine- both sides use the exact same casting.

There is no passage in the rear of the intake, as I mentioned before. The front passage is what is used. The gasket is similar to the heads- one gasket (like one head) will fit EITHER side of the engine.

It does not make any difference to the way the engine cooling system works, if the gasket is open or not on the rear ports- the rear ports dead end at the intake manifold- there is no water passage from the head into the intake. The water stops at the intake, whether it stops at an open gasket that butts into the intake or if the water port in the head is covered by a gasket, the intake has NO rear water passage.

The "traditional" intake gaskets have holes front and rear- this is only so one gasket needed- one gasket will fit both sides of the engine.

ericnova72 The SBC intake gaskets have water holes in both ends so that they are interchangeable and can be used on either side of the engine. There are no rear water ports in stock OEM intakes, it is only aftermarket performance intakes that have water ports in the rear, for the guys who want to modify their engines for four corner water return.

It would have nothing to do with your overheating problem.
