It's more than likely best that you put the stock head on. I normally wouldn't use a aftermarket cooling head that is intended to lower temps while breaking in a motor. When I ran RB's a while back, you really had to get the head temps up in the 200's so that the sleeve would expand enough to not cause additional wear to the crank pin. I had seen a RB WS7 with a ruined crank possibly because the motor wasn't hot enough and put additional strain on the internals of the motor. It was egg shaped, which happened to my C5 eventually after many gallons of fuel. I hope you didn't start the break in process yet.

haha no i was saying put a sock(like you wear on ur feet) over the head to keep the temps up. I am going to use a blow dryer to get the temps up as much as i can before i start it up for the first time.

I can't wait to do the mad scientist thing. Very cool. I have a few ideas I'd like to try. Now I need the Mad Scintist or Witch's Brew lables. I think green would be a good color for my own "Swamp Water" blend.
