    Water pump is leaking

    Havent touched my bird all day. its the warmest its been all year so far and my folks tell me there is a giant orange puddle under my car... so i got out there and smack the pulley and coolant is puddling and dripping out it... so shit. the weep hole is leaking.

    GM factory replacement pump
    or
    ls1/ls6 high high volume water pump.

    Im going to get the high volume unless otherwise someone tells me why i shouldnt

    Picking up a new thermostat as well. 180 most likely

    If you buy a GM unit it comes with a new thermostat
    Mine did.

    It was a few miles short of 158k and almost 11 years old. I cant bitch for sure about the GM and yes it comes with a thermostat.

    Driving in summer with the AC on heats mine up pretty fast so i think im going to switch between 180 in summer and 195 in fall/winter. Ill have frost hook me up with a tune here soon
