 Toby, I did see this before. I like it, but you're right about the $400+ (including fittings) price tag. Seems a little much. Although, it's right in line with the high end electrics. May be my last resort. Thanks for the photo's and refreshing my memroy on the Renegade water pump. I'll let you know what I end up doing with it.

Featuresour Renegade custom, cast 
aluminum, housing, utilizing an aluminum Chryslerstyle big block impeller. Includes adjustable mounting bracket, pulley, and coolantFittings. The flow rate of this pump is comparable to many high performanceChevrolet pumps. (Replacement impeller for custom housing = $89.00)COOLANT INLET PLATES & FITTINGS: Machined from aluminum. Bolts $80.00to the front of the block where the stock water pump was located. Includes ¾"90-degree fittings. Priced per pair.I am seriously considering using their pump even though it is rather high $, as it's the only that delivers the GPM and sits out of the way. Contact them for pictures.Hope this helps,Toby Brown-----Original Message-----I've looked at electric WP's (as well as remote mount electric), and as tempted as I am to give it a try, I'm a bit reluctant. The best flow rate I've seen out of an electric WP is about 55 GPM, and the factory WP has a flow rate of about 95-110GPM. Not sure what this would do to the operating temp. which runs 
currently at about 220 in around town driving (with a 160 degree thermostat). I'm comfortable with this temp., but I wouldn't want it to go much higher.Any thoughts?George Jones_______________________________________________V8Vairs mailing listV8Vairs at corvair.orghttp://www.vv.corvair.org/mailman/listinfo/v8vairsThis list sponsored by the Corvair Society of America, http://www.corvair.org/
