My son was talking to you at Norwalk and sent me a photo of the car asking "Guess what engine is in this?".  The build thread made answering him a no brainer.

I saw a couple of GRMers there, but no one that seemed familiar with my build. I'm glad I had the chance to talk to your son. Hope I didn't talk his ear off too much!

Very interesting build!  Was it necessary to remove lightness to accomplish the goal?

In reply to billy69 :

It's a Meziere electric pump that mounts right behind the radiator and is fed from the lower radiator hose. As long as there is coolant in the radiator, it gets pumped through the engine. My engine runs pretty cool, 195 ish, even in 90 degree plus outside temps. Pump connects via 2 12an hoses, to block off plates attached where the stock water pump was attached. Hope that helps!
