Dyslexia,yes you

My point was that I have had MANY big blocks over the last 24 years with both pumps and have not had the drama that you are spuiking.

To which I asked you, if you have had the same experience............and you replied that you have had multiple mech pumps on your engine

Dry your eyes princess....

So you don't get the point?

Just because mech pumps don't work for YOU.............It don't mean that they are not going to work in someone else's application

If I get to the Manhattan on the weekend, I'll bring some wipes over so you can get the sand out of your vagina.

Have another beer Jim..

Going by what's in books and plenty on the 'net, mech pumps don't work for a lot of people..
..and just because they work for YOU, doesn't mean they'll work for everyone.

Did you even lay down a decent 60ft time in the 800hp+ blown Nova to see if the mech pump kept up? I mean, that thing should have ran 9s or very low 10s at least.. What car in the 9s runs a mech pump?

I haven't had a beer but thanks for your concern

I never said they would work for everybody.......but you pretty well said that they wouldn't work for anyone based on your experience(which is obviously limited as you need to use "Going by what's in books and plenty on the 'net" hearsay) .

But I would certainly try one before I start running extra wiring,plumb in a shut off,and put up with the noise of an electric pump.
