Post twin turbo chevy 454,,,need advice

My twin turbo kit came off a race boat and it has water cooled exhaust manifolds, my question is do I need to have the manifolds waterc cooled? What will happen if I just blocked off the water jackets, will it act as a regular manifold or will it be too hot?

thanks
Brian

It will be fine. My somewhat educated guess is that 1500 degree exhaust manifolds in a fiberglass boat tend to cause problems. Just block them off.

By the way you are lucky to find those. I have searched everywhere for a set for a smallblock. None under 500 dallars so far.
