Electric Water Pump

So, the Meziere pump has been in for almost 2 weeks now... I have to say- I like it!
I'm not claiming tons of extra HP(although I'm sure there may be some), but my temps are much more consistant. Doesn't matter how I'm driving, or outside temp, the 'idiot gauge' doesn't do much moving.
Install was a breeze, and other than a shorter belt(I have UD pullies), NOTHING was changed to do the install. If I had to, I could pull it, and drop in a stock pump with no mods, in a matter of minutes.

Besides, it's just cool looking too.
(I know, I know... Usless without pics Give me a day or 2)

If anyone is interested, I could talk to them about a possible GP. They all seem very cool, and would probably be interested. The unit I got was a refurb, at about $100 off the list price.

Yeah, a switch panel is on my to-do list. Force the fan and/or pump on or off at any time. It's low on the list, but it is on the list.

Me three, I'm very happy with mine. Coolant temps are lower and much more consistant (as monitored by a real gauge), and the SOTP meter noticed a slight difference in power.

how long have all you guys had yours in and whats an estimated amount of usage your car gets? Are these reliable or do they fail more often than conventional pumps, like people claim?

Yea, what he said. I'd love to have one, and I've got a place for a switch.

On a similar line... is there a way to install a switch that will turn on the factory fan with the car sitting off without interfering with the normal operation of the factory thermostatic switch?

I installed mine about a month ago on the XR7, which sees just under 3,000 miles a year. The pumps are rated to last at least 3,000 hours, which if you averaged 30 miles per hour, would work out to 90,000 miles. I've only seen two claims of the Meziere electric water pumps failing, and I did a LOT of searching before I decided to buy one.

IIRC, you can place a switch inline on one of the wires at the IRCM. I'm letting the EEC control the puller fan, and I have the pusher fan on a switch. When I'm sitting in the staging lanes at the track, all I have to do is turn the key to ACC (I wired the water pump to run when the key is in either the ON or ACC positions) and flip the switch for the pusher fan to drop coolant temps rapidly.

Mine is different...I run a Moroso pump for a pushrod.
My car sees roughly 30 miles a year.

Mine should last.....forever.

Talking with John at Meziere, he said they should run 24/7 for a year. Minimum.
They tested a set before they released it as a DD install. So, an hour or two a day will last quite a while.
