wouldn't hurt anything to tee a -4 off of your bell housing cooler to the chiller..

Considering that would essentially tie the 2 independent systems together, the dual sea water pump engine cooling side and the no pump intercooler side, should I put some kind of check valve in the -4 tee so I don't get bleed back from the cooler circuit or do you think pump pressure will always exceed non pump pressure through the cooler? Just don't want to cause any interference issues. Thanks bud!
