: rwd northstar plumbing

does the northstar motor in the RWD cars (05+) have a front water pump? this pic shows one i think? is there a rear coolant crossover between the heads? i assume intake is plastic and dry? no coolant flow? have not seen a new RWD NS in any streetrods yet. a few cobbled up old style FWD motors with custom engine mounts.

the water pump and water outlet/crossover are on the front of the engine. the intake manifold removal/installation section shows no water lines or passages, however there is coolant flow through the throttle body.
