Original water pump or electrical , what to use .

Im mounting my radiator up front , Honda S2000 radiator , And beacause of this my water pipes will be ca : 10 feet , pluss some inches with rubber / silicone hoses to connect it all .

Will the original water pump outstand this ? I gonna drill out a little hole in the thermostate valve , to make the shock pulses a little less hard on the pump , open/ close of the thermostate .

Or should i convert to an all electrical water pump ,

Ive read all post on this NICE forum , but still some questiones , so please help if you can ,

Engine is 86 streetported 13b sixport .

Regards

Alex

stock pump should be fine, I found that the stock pump was more than adequate on the mazda engine to push all the water.

It is very important to drill that hole in your thermostat, it will help your cooling system tramendously.
