>OK, I will do a write up update sometime this weekend, many requests,

for those who can't wait for the update, the following is quoted from a
post by avi about 5 weeks ago:

* The pump is a 12Volt coolant pump and is designed to act as a water pump
for a small block Chevy,
* Electrical draw is under 10AMP and when the coolant is hot the electrical
draw is only 2 AMP, as a comparison, the draw on the rad. fan (at the lowest
speed) is between 11-13 AMP
* The pump is NOT magnetically driven, it is driven by a shaft with a high
temperature impeller (when you get the pump you get 2 spare impellers)
* Dia. of the pump is app. 2.5" and length is under 6"
* The pump section is all SS
* The flow capacity of the pump is many time over the Audi pump (designed to
replace the water pump on a small block Chevy)
* The pump will  fit very nicely in the same location of the old pump
* I wired it with a relay just to be on the safe side, did not trust the
"chintzy" OEM wires, the pump has continues 12Volt and the ground is
activated when the pump is on (OEM set-up), you have to wire it accordingly,
no big deal
* the pump runs noticeably less time than the OEM pump, probably because it
is a REAL pump not a "piss poor" (engineering terminology) excuse for a pump
* cost for the pump is about $90 and Shogun has them (they are on the net),
