If you're going to go through all that trouble, why not just use an M90? Less heat, more airflow. The M62 really is just a big heat factory.

The 92-93 M62 was quite inefficent and didn't have coated rotors. In 94-95 the rotors gained coating and became more efficient, however the design of that generation M62 was still inefficent in comparison to the more recent M62 used on the Cobalt SS when it was supercharged (before the turbo version).

I'd maybe try and find a newer gen off a cobalt and use that. Maybe you can find the maifold as well.
