    Change Water Pump Or Not

    I Have A Very Small Leak In My Water Pump, I Alredy Change The Thermostat And Still Leaking I Might Overtorque The Bolts And Im Wondering If Any Of You Guys Has Change The Stock One For A Mezziere. I Know There Its Only A Few Horsepower Gain But Does It Worth The Money Or I Should Get A New One Oem ?

    Note: Evans coolant pumps can only be used with Evans NPG+ or NPG-R waterless coolant.
    dont think its a good choice for a street car.

    X2 - they have a very short lifespan compared to an OEM water pump. Something like 2000- 3000 hours - which isn't that all that long. Spend your $$ on something else.

    I put on a Meziere electric water pump last year. It worked great for 11 months. Then it started getting louder. Yesterday it seized up. Fortunately I stopped in time to save my motor. Tomorrow I will send it back for a warranty claim.

    Did ya seal it back up? re-check your torques and pull it off and put a new seal on it and re-assemble.
