    Electric Water Pump Group Purchase

    Gaging interested in a electric water pump kit for the 3.8 SC motors. The kit would include a Meziere 55 gallon/minute water pump with a idler pully that lines up with our acc belt. A two piece interface block that has the heater outlet, thermostat bypass outlet, a 1.25" inlet tube. This block will bolt to the timing chain cover in place of the mechanical pump and then the electric waterpump would bolt to the two piece block. I have had a prototype on my car for the last 1.5" years and has exceeded all expectations. We are expecting to start manufacturing in December with deliverys in January. The cost for the complete kit would be somewhere around $650; depending on the amount of interest. Questions?

    Who would be interested in a group buy?

    Mike

    I think this is great but you might find more buyers willing to part with their money sometime after the new year once people have a chance to recover from their Christmas purchases.

    Now, you can do what you want since this is your post but I do believe it is something to really consider.

    I'm interested... Could you give some idea on your experience so far. I'm a bit gun shy on electric pumps for longevity. In the 1.5 years, do you have a feel for how many miles or hours you have put on the pump? any issues with fuses wiring? What kind of draw does the pump have?

    Yes, with a modified idler pully.

    Can the modded pulley easily be swapped if the motor needs to be replaced?

    Meziere warrents thier pumps for 2 years and is one of the best that can be had. Advantages with the electric waterpump vs the mechanical are:

    Constant flow at any rpm - unlike the mechanical which flow varies with motor rpm

    Mechanical loads the crank - less load on the crank means faster revving motor

    Ability to cool motor by circulating coolant with motor off.

    11-14 horsepower gain - numbers from Meziere

    There maybe others - I am sure the experts will chime in.

    Mike, I've got a couple marauders running around with these pumps with zero problems. Never blown any fuses. I guess they've been on the cars for about 3 years now.
