electric water pump

are there any other options besides meziere? anyone running these have any problems?
also dont think itd be an issue but im running a 25% underdrive pulley, would the pump be to much for the alternator since its turning slower?

You'll be ok with th UD pulley. Meziere street will be your best choice unless you are only going to be racing at the 1/4 then the race version is for you.

Some say 5 others 10 others but you can leave in on while at the track for cool off.

That's kinda like the fast debate. Sure it will help but like the heads and intake, dollar per hp is a steep price

It is not worth half that price. Whatever extra power over a pulley is not worth the extra $600...you can find used pulleys for around $150. Not to mention that if it goes bad one day, and it will go bad one day, you will be stuck where you are. And god-forbid you're driving and don't notice your temps going up. My advice if you get it, make sure you wire it correctly, keep extra fuses with you, and monitor your temps constantly. But I'd pass on that if I were you.

I see you point but when your at a point where you have all boltons and then some and are trying to squeeeeeze a Lil more out then lots turn to the EWP. They don't burn out like that they last a good while.

Would a ls3 pump be usable on l99? i know something about the gasket being different but could it work? most places seem to only carry the ls3 model

They should be the same pump. Don't see how it would be different. Ls1/Ls2/Ls3 are the same gasket.

The ls3 Mezeire pump is the same but the l99 Mezeire gives u the clearance you need in between the different front cover and the pump.

The pump is the same, the l99 kit has some spacers I believe.
