It really isn't a good choice for a street driven car... for reliability over the long haul it's hard to beat a mechanical pump. One step above that is a mechanical pump that's not belt driven, like the one in my '94 Impala SS (LT1). Direct driven from the rear by the cam.

Vic Edelbrock Jr. has been around for a long time and has done extensive testing on all of the parts they make and sell. They don't sell an electric wtr. pump for the street because " electric water pumps aren't a good pick for the street"....they say that for a reason!! Go to any hot rod run with 1000 cars, you may find 1 with an electric pump. Good luck with whichever you choose.

You will need 35-50 GPM pump to do the job. You can buy a Mezierre from summit or jegs for about $360.
