The liquid heat riser is a must have with a header IMHO. It will make it warm up nicely when it's cold and keep it from vapor locking when it's hot. You can buy one as a kit or you can make your own. You just need a square piece of thick plate (the kit ones are aluminum but steel would work if you powder coat it) drill 4 bolt holes to match the bottom of the intake then drill & tap 2 holes that you screw 90* right angle fittings into. These are for the in-out flow of coolant. Make sure you put an air bleed into the heater hose at the highest point near the firewall and you're ready to go.
