Looking for a little input. I'm planning out the install of a new radiator with electric fans on my 73 RS. I am running a 355 with an Air Gap intake.The heads are old school 461s. The heater hose is connected on the pass side front and my temp gauge is connected to the drive side front of the intake. The Air Gap intake has fittings on all four corners that access the coolant. Thinking of using the pass side rear for my fan temp sensor. Any ideas on this? I just had another thought. Could I use the pass side rear for the heater hose and use the front for the fan?

It would definitely be better to use the rear port for the heater and the front for the temp sensor.
