Default cooling system advice

So as my build progresses I have another question regarding my cooling system...let me try to explain this without the help of pics or links hahaha...just to recap...525 sc original going to 575 blower(256 b&m) and the original 575 intake....I did not get the thermostat housing when I purchased the setup so I was looking at hardin marine and they sell a supercharger specific thermostat housing with 2 AN fittings coming off which of course goes to my headers....heres my question...I have 4 inlets on my headers which the 525 thermostat housing accommodated...can I plug the upper inlet on the headers and just use the thermostat housing from hardin and run just 2 inlets into the headers??? I believe they are CMI's and they have the manifold that runs along the bottom of the headers with the one feed in the front and then the other feed is up on top near the elbow which on the original 525 setup just had a line that tee'd from the top of the thermostat housing to these upper ports....sorry for being long winded but trying to explain the best I can lol

thanks!!

Yes, just plug the upper inlets on the headers.
Install a water pressure guage if you don't have one already.

I will do that....thanks!!

What pressure would be a concern?? I'm still up in the air about a circ water pump or just run a bypass...probably wont run a thermostat as I'm trying to keep her cold on purpose
