Yes I do. I never drove it, just used it for a mock up.
Wanna sell it ? If so shoot me a price.
Steve , what did you do to yours ?

If you delete the fan pulley you may be able to delete the top idler as well and just go from the water pump straight over to the power steering pulley.


What about a crank driven accessory drive like they use for the fuel boss pump and or marine applications?

That could be used to drive the power steering pump. Then you go straight from crank > alternator > ac compressor > tensioner > back to crank.

I drove it 6 miles home from where I installed it and immediately ordered the idler pulley above it. Throttle response being the driving force behind the decision.
What did I do to what?
I thought you did some belt rerouting or something, guess you were referencing the smaller fan pulley ?

Yeah IDK, I do know the throttle response was there and noticeable driving down the neighborhood street. That was enough for me to buy the 2nd pulley.

I went ahead and ordered the pump from Jegs, will do it in 2 steps. Sunday I will spec out the belt for deleting the fan pulley and run that for a bit. Then when the pump arrives, push that in there to play with for a bit in a month or so after some run-time with the belt swap.

Also, before i do anything else, I have to roll back a tune. Started down a path that proved to be a bad one. Still learned though...

Sometimes when we fail we think it wasn't meant to be, or give up on it, when in fact we just figured out a way to not proceed, and that is usually necessary in order to move again in a positive direction.

A wise man once said the reason most people do not succeed in a venture is they come to a point where they realize it comes dressed in coveralls, and looks like work...

Plugged in the Digital temp controller today, super easy to wire which is good because I'm brain dead with electronics. Interestingly the directions say to use the old OEM STAT with the guts removed. Hmmm OK. Then tells me if you drive in cold climates to drill two holes in it?

Went for a test drive with PWM hooked up to the water pump and fans. Thankfully everything was functioning as advertised, so I had no surprises. Ok, so what the display tells me as I'm driving is coolant temp, water pump mode, and fan mode as well as volts. Here's what I noticed driving. It took a while to get fully warmed up, no surprise, I have a radiator fit for a tank. As it was warming up the pump was in pulse mode, I would liken it to a square wave welder, even though we're running on DC the software allows it to send signals to the pumps in different patterns...amazing! As it starts to warm up the pulse pattern changes faster and faster as it approaches your set point the pump comes on full steam ahead as well as the fans, and the display shows you that the fans are running as well as the pump. When the temp comes back down the fans go off, and the pump returns to pulse mode, and so on. That's my interpretation of how it works in real time.

PS, I did not have the fans hooked up for this test, I wanted to see if it would cycle on just the pump alone, and it did easily.

My favorite thing about this set up is when you shut down, the pump and fans keep running water through the radiator, engine, and turbo to get rid of any heat soak! It shuts down completely after the coolant temp is 14 deg below your pre set temp, or in 3 min or which ever comes first.

Thats disappointing... IIRC, claims were that it was supposed to speedup warmup time. But it makes sense I guess, if the pump is on at all (which it has to be) you'll have flow out of the head 100% of the time.

How does the warmup time compare to the previous setup?

With the way you describe the controller functions, not sure that is a route that would be good for me. Maybe just the hardwired pump & no controller is the way to go (in my case). As it sits, my fans dont turn on until approx 205~206* and the temps hold at 199~203. I still have my bumper block in place off the 1500 bumper & 1/3 of the front grill blocked form the inside (year round now).

I realized after I wrote that review it was only 80 deg vs. 120 so as for warm up times I have no data to compare. Also I need to go for a much longer drive not just around the block.
