For us in hotter states, the drilling is done to help keep some coolant flow at all times and help reduce the potential for heat related damage to our 3800s (I.E. UIM and LIM failures).

Here'* a really good thread that talks about it and also includes some links to TechInfo and other good threads:

Reflex is best. Sensatrac is next. Be warned that you may have an imbalance if you only do the fronts. Try it for awhile.
