I've made like 18-20 passes back to back before. Didn't skip a beat. Lol. Don't know anyone who can say they have done as many in a couple hours.

Although i have no reason to run a bbc pump either part of the reason i like a ewp is because i can do away with the tensioner. The belt then only runs around the crank/alt/ps if you have that. It reduces clutter/weight and some rotating weight.

I'm in the middle of gathering parts for a LS swap in a 89 Fox.I'm gonna run the BBC water pump from ebay and ICT adapters.The water pump is E-5927-P and the ICT adapters are 551515 and then you'll need a Y and other fittings.I've not done this but a friend through facebook has and was nice enough to share.I hope this helps,

After installing an EWP, I was pointed in the direction of DaviesCraig for a fan controller...I could have used their set-up and maybe save a few $$ ?

I run a bbc electric pump with the ICT billet adapters on our 6.0 S10 build. I made a top hose adapter/splitter from stainless to split the top hose into 2 hoses to the pump. It has worked flawlessly for 2 years at the track.

That's definitely cool looking, but there is a lot going on right in front of the motor, might cause issues with accessories, no?

What accessories? Drag car. Maybe need a tiny alternator but that's about it.

I only have an alternator...but relocating due to Meziere EWP.

I guess IF you had AC, PS, ETC....yes, could be an issue ?

Would you have a pic or two to show how you did it? Im right into this project wise and already have CSR BB pump id like to use on my set up.

Gathering info and inspiration to make up my mind on how to best go about it!

Thanks a lot,

Lead.

I'm joining the EWP crowd. Do most of you guys put the pump relay on a switch or on all time ignition on ? I could see a switch would be convienant but easy to forget to turn on. I went with a meziere pump. Seems to be the cheapest route since I'm only running a alternator.

Mine is on a relay and comes on with engine start.

My fans are on their own relays and cycle on/off as needed.

I thought about a bypass for the pump for cool downs, but as of right now, not needed.

You could mount the pump anywhere. Just run the hoses to it.

Thanks, I think I'm also gonna wire it for ign on- pump on also. Easy enough to add a switch later if I need it.
