Bypassing V6 oil\water exchanger hose?

I'm about to finish my RWD\mid engine project on my 156's, and had maybe silly question.
The hose that runs from the engine block to oil\water exchanger(removed) and ends into thermostat housing, in my opinion can be removed and tapped. If other engine bank miss that coolant gallery, so guess there is no problem.
Just need bit of more space at this place, and extra hose is little bit of pain here.
Thanks.....
P.S - just noticed that GTA didnt use hose like this.

What are you doing about front hubs & wheel bearings? As they don't roll well unless the outer stub of the driveshaft is installed as the hub nut is fully tightened.

I'm using only outer part of old driveshafts, machined, just to support the bearings......

I did the same on my 33 rwd project. Disasembled CV joint so that only the "outer shell" is used.

@ Speedmaster

I like your way of work, we could talk for hours if we met someday
