LT1 riser temp?

Noticed the drivers side riser was quite a bit warmer than the other side after I bought my 96 Prostar late last season.

Researched the threads and understand that because of the steam vents both routing to that riser it may be normal but suspected a collapsed exhaust hose or muffler obstruction.

Pulled the riser, hose and muffler last night and found them all in good shape. Water passages in manifold and riser are not occluded.

Impeller is new and engine temperature holds at 160 all day.

You guys think I'm worried about nothing or just missing something obvious?

I have a 93 with LT1 mine runs a higher temp on that side too, everything has checked out okay. When I asked in the past I was told that as normal. 🤷

Thanks Nick.

Didn't expect the difference in temperature to be so great but now I feel better having taken a look at everything.

Fitting new exhaust hoses, gaskets and riser hardware today. If that goes together well I might get to spend Father's Day on the water.

Any other LT1 owners out there?

If you got roughly the same amount of water coming out both exhausts when you run it on the trailer, should be no issue.

Mine is the same way, star-bird side is much hotter.
