Default Forced Air cooled heat head

is it safe to force cool the Head with air. I dont want to do a fan I was thinking of doing like a tunnel effect(like ram air) on the body to cool the head quicker. Would I be able to lean it out more if I cooled it quicker?

I wouldn't advise for you to do that, if engine is tuned right with stock setup then you put on aftermarket bigger head the needles should remain the same for proper fuel mix but I've noticed the engine needs to be leaned out for it to retain any heat in the cylinder to make power. So what you end up doing is running in a lean condition and engine will wear out sooner, just b/c something makes engine temp cooler doesn't mean it needs to be leaned out to run at the previous temperature. So I would only recmooend extra cooling efforts via bigger heads or ram air thing if your engine runs above 300* consistently and everything else is right with the car, engine, driveline, power setup, etc...

You can lean out an engine so much before it doesnt have enough oil, no matter what temperature its running.
