Default 8-Ball gets some chrome.

As in chrome electric water pump. My wife bought it for me for my birthday a few months ago and I just now got the chance to get it installed. Looks good and i'm hoping it will help me with the heat issues I have been having. Seems the car likes to get hot on trips with sustained 70+mph driving. I also added Royal Purples equivilent of water wetter so I'm hoping between the two the car will stay cooler.

A nice side effect of the ewp is that I can key on at the track and have the coolant circulate without having to have the motor running. Should help cool the motor faster between runs.

Here are some pics:

I recommend getting the wiring pump harness with it so its plug and play but yea its pretty easy. Hardest part was finding a place to mount the relay
