Downside is they go out with no warning and you are stuck sitting wherever it decides to die.

That's why I stick with the stock cam driven pump....if it goes it'll still get you home.

Yeah, and every 4 years you have to send the EWP's off to the company for a rebuild (for a fee.). Wasn't worth it IMO

There's a guy with an S10 running a 500+ ci motor with a huge blower and Alky..

Damn motor gets COLD when it runs, I bet you could run the thing dry!
