Using this adapter where the hose goes into the top of the radiator would put it on the high pressure side. But you say they used things like this on some of the stock LS applications?

My steam vent is hooked into the cooling system down low near the top of the water pump via a T fitting. But they say it should hook where the steam can go to the highest part of the system.

Heat rises. Coolant flows from the coolest end (bottom) of the radiator into the engine and return from the engine goes into the top of the radiator. The whole system will be close to equal pressure but the top hose would allow in flow as steam is compressible while liquid is not.
