you don't need an electric water pump. A Moroso water pump drive kit will do all you need. Use one for nearly 20 years racing every weekend and running in the 9's.

But if you've got ~ $300 burning a hole in your pocket and have to have one, buy a Meziere

the 55GPH pumps will NOT pump that capacity unless your hoses are the same diameter as the pump's inlet and outlet

I used to drive on the street all the time with that little Moroso electric motor spinning my stock water pump. Never lost a belt. First motor lasted 4 years or so.

I would not buy a CSR pump, had two, got rid of both! Have a Mezier but see no difference in cooling between it and the stock pump driven by the Moroso motor. Looks cleaner, that's all. Costs a lot more too! If the Moroso motor pukes it is a few minutes to change and no mess!

A motor that's too weak to pump its own water needs some serious help. LOL

I must be the only cheap one here... LOL
I have a Proform $150 35GPH pump on mine. It's worked flawlessy for at least 4 years now, gets driven a lot on the street, as well as 5MPH driving on the hot ass sand dunes. Never had an issue

Good idea, do I have to relocate my alternator? It is on passanger side head. I would like to get one of those alt. bracket kits that relocates it lower, but I forgot the name of the company.

no need to relocate your alternator to mount/run Moroso's "universal" water pump drive kit.

Cheap, easy to install and does the job well. Mine drove the factory 7 blade steel clutch fan for nearly 2 decades.

I use the Moroso electric motor as well, and a close friend of mine uses one also. I use to have a plastic fan mounted to my water pump, and between rounds trying to cool the engine down I only had to run one electric motor to run both fan and pump. Never mind the arrows.

I got a Moroso drive on my car plus I use an alternator bracket from this place: http://www.alangrovecomponents.com/

He makes some good brackets.

I use to run the Moroso drive on the stock pumps with a aluminium flex fan to cool my race cars. They worked well for many years and my old Nova my brother owns now still has one on it. I bought a CVR about 10 yrs ago. It has done well and never given me any issues so far.
