Out on the track, every single ounce of horsepower is important. Parasitic power suckers like mechanical radiator fans and pulley-driven water pumps have no place on a purpose-built race car. At the same time, you still need adequate, reliable cooling capacity for a 10-second run down the quarter mile.
Mr. Gasket’s 35 gallons-per-minute electric water pump (#70442G) can provide trouble-free cool-down for your B or RB big block Chrysler. The die-cast aluminum body is powder coated black and will fit the factory cast iron water pump housing or aftermarket aluminum versions while the impeller is machined from billet aluminum and made for a precise fit. Wiring is simple as it’s a two wire hookup with the supplied Weather Pack pigtail and inline fuse holder. Wet amperage draw from the electric motor is a manageable 8.0A. A mounting gasket and hardware are included.
In addition to that, Mr. Gasket can provide a weight-saving aluminum water pump housing (#70411G), relay kit (#40210G) , or Frostbite Performance Cooling radiator to complete the cooling circuit. The aluminum housing is an obvious upgrade that saves more than 8 pounds compared to the cast iron piece and makes for better heat transfer. Depending on your wiring scheme, the relay kit can help take the load off the rest of your electrical system. Frostbite radiators are 100% TIG-welded aluminum and available in 2, 3, or 4-row, bolt-in configurations.
