300ci Head gasket. I have the fel-pro 1024 gasket. The water passage holes are very small. Is there a reason for this or should I open them up some?

This applies to 300ci engines only

Do NOT open them up. They are calibrated to let just the right amount of coolant up through the block into the head to cool each of the combustion chambers.
The rest of the coolant travels up through the big "banana" holes at the back and forward to the T-stat.
