Thermostat on wrong end
 
If I would tap and thread the heads at the bell housing area and use a remote thermostat housing there what would happen to the temp [hot spots]of the enigne if any. I know I would have to do some thing at the front to get air out because of the tilt of the engine?

I'm building a gasser type car like dad ran but would be a street/strip use car to take to shows. Was looking at putting radaitor in trunk with electric fans ,55 GPM electric remote water pump. Was thinking of running a 5/8 or 3/4 line out of the rear of each head to a remote thermostat housing like the ones on blower intake. This is to just hide as many lines as possible. Still going to put water into the engine up front, but have been told that I could go into the center of the block on both sides also like some sprint cars are set up. Will be running small block chevy with a 6-71 blower.

Most engines circulate coolant from front to back in the block then from back to front in the heads. Your plan runs the risk of overheating the front of the heads.
