expansion tank water pump

Post  kjett on October 4th 2018, 9:02 am

running an alcohol injection setup on my new truck and not planning to run a radiator since it should only be running 3-4 seconds at a time. Plan is to just run a short shose set up to and aluminum U bend to circulate some water to cool the heads after the nitrous passes. did some searching and can't find/remember who made the electric expansion tank style water pumps to give me a way to fill the system a little easier. Anyone know who makes them?

Meziere makes them, pretty hefty price tag, $770.00 from Jegs.

No kidding on that price tag! but I guess in perspective, with a $30k motor, is a $700 water pump really that bad?

Agreed - but I was still a bit stunned at the price.

I've used a small pump from a heat exchanger off a lightning truck. In my pulling truck I have a 8 gallon ice tank with pump inside using #12 lines. It works a little too good if I use ice so typically just run all water. This is the pump inside the ice tank https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-2000-GPH-Marine-Bilge-Pump-12-Volt-4-year-Warranty/311124236625?epid=1064051137&hash=item4870731951:g:Xd0AAOSwOgdYqvcj
