the "plastic" pump is less then a 1 kilo and the Alu pump is 1.2 kilos ..so pretty lightweight and no need for support.. the hose can handle that ...

Perhaps the hose can but it is poor design and unnecessarily risking a failure point. Should be easy to remedy with a homemade brace of some sort.

With the pump being less than 200$ that is a tempting addition to any setup if it is reliable.

Post back after you've had some use out of it, I just bought a brand new mechanical pump for my current setup but a lil booster pump to run in the pits would be nice.

also went for a test drive here in Hot Costa Rica Weather conditions .. first i had a problem with the fan relais and Fan didnt run..so temp was rising.. up to 94 C not much but I had the controller to 85 and warning light went on .. ok..after fixing it and fan starts to run ..it took 60 seconds to cool down from 94 to 82 deg..not bad and during driving temp difference was only 3 deg from hottest to coolest ..always 81 to 84 deg C .. cruising and some standing launches from 0 to 80mph...always very stable temp ... data log line is almost one straight.. maybe today Ill gona try with Nitrous to see what happens...all over.. very happy with that now cooling stuff...
