Default SBF Heater tie ins

I have built a sbf with an electric coolant pump. Problem is it has no connections for a heater. Could I run a tee off the outlet of the pump to the heater then back in through the intake coolant passage? would that have flow?

If you drill and tap the 90 degree neck then install a fitting you can.

Maybe I'll be stuck with an electric heater.

Same concept on the pump you have.
90 degree 5/8" fitting here.

I have seen in-hose "Ts" with a heater hose size outlet. Space considerations may hamper this idea, though.

Something like this would be fairly easy to make, too.

That would be fairly easy. So drill tap, run line to heater, then return and dump into the intake?

It'll flow the opposite, "hot" from the intake, "cold" return to the pump.
