6.0L Coolant Circulation Line Kit

I know a few people have used this kit, but haven't really heard any feedback from those that have it. Is this a worth while mod to do while the heads are off? If it works like it is supposed to, I think it would be. Just looking for some feedback. Thank you

Re: 6.0L Coolant Circulation Line Kit

Take a look at your gasket. Look at the little holes in the middle cylinders for coolant to flow from block to head. Look at the big holes in the end. Coolant is supposed to flow up from the block to the head and then forward to the front cover. Which gives you dwell time for heat absorption. Since the majority of the issues is in the center cylinders. Giving coolant the chance to leave the back of the head and not have to go through the centers seems wrong to me.

Look at a 6.4L gasket. The holes to the center cylinders are bigger. Looks like that would improve coolant flow to the center cylinders.

Just my observation.

Thank you for your observation. That is what I am looking for, someone that works on these engines daily. Anybody else want to weigh in?

Re: 6.0L Coolant Circulation Line Kit

I have had coolant recirc lines on my engine for almost two years...when I pull the heads, I will take pictures of it.

If I put them back on, I think I would run a valve on both sides, so I could shut them off in the winter time.

Yeah, I can remember you saying somthing about the lack of heat in the winter time. Did you narrow it down to the lines causing the problem?
