      I ran mine through the same grommet! LOL.
      It is so easy to make a tiny hole in the rubber grommet with a pic and then fish the wire through.

      If you go from the interior side and feed wire through, eventually you will see wire on the other side. LOL

      lol. Thanks.
      I'll look tonight. I havn't had to deal with the vacuum lines yet, so I'm not sure what I need to take apart to get at it yet. It might be as simple (and as difficult) as sticking my head under the dash on the passenger side.

      This is where I routed mine

      Controller tucks up nicely on the kick panel, and even the most scared shitless of passengers can’t kick at it.

      I'll have to have a look in the glove box. They really are not good for holding much anyway (Besides Gloves). Might be a great spot also.

      So, I tested the pump and snow Performance 375ml/min nozzle in a bucket last night while checking for leaks. I never really thought about what 375ml/min is, but it sure empties my reservoir fast at full voltage. Another observation was that the pump sure is loud. I guess you never hear it over the engine and exhaust noise when on the gas.

      Last go round with my black truck I didn't bother with the led's for low reservoir or 'pump active'. This time I'll need to know when the reservoir is getting empty and be able to watch to make sure the pump is active when in boost. These led's should fit nicely on my pillar mount.

      I’m running mine into the washer tank. That way if I get low, it shows in the display I’m the message center. I also rigged up a LED in the pillar pod between the boost and wideban so I can see if the pump is coming on, and how strong it’s also coming on. The light will be dim and get briter as the pump spins faster

      I have a big ass red LED but it is in my center console and I don't stare at that when at WOT. LOL
      Can see it when the run is over though so it does help.

      I have a big blue one for when the pump is spraying.
      Would like to put smaller ones in the instrument cluster, but wouldn't want them to be very bright.

      I think Painless wiring sells the small led dots for that.

      The kit I have has led's in it. I just never installed them, and years later I didn't loose the led's. Very unusual for me. The last go round I used my windshield washer container and the message center for low fluid level also. Mine always leaked and then I had 2 issues (Wipers, and no spray under boost). Funny thing is, his go round with the separate container there doesn't seem to be any leaks at all first try. Figures.

      ok, nothing new on my motor. Hasn't come apart yet. I'm hoping it gets pulled apart this weekend and inspected.

      While waiting, I ordered a flowkooler water pump from Summit.. I saw reviews where the quality control on these seemed sketchy. So, the first thing I did was inspect it. Sure enough, the impeller was binding. For the cost I wasn't going to screw with it. Live chat with Summit Racing, and I have another pump coming. As you can see from the chat, instructions are to throw the old one away. Fantastic customer service, as cross border shipping is a pain in the a$$. Lets hope the next one is in better shape.

      Wow, why even bother making that, if that's the end result, and if others have already returned it, why are they still selling them?

      I know, Right?
      The pump its self looks like a modified GMB pump. I will say its disappointing. I'm hoping the next one is ok.

      Water pumps. LOL
      I went to Advance Auto to get a new water pump and a bunch of other parts for the 2001 Ranger I just picked up.
      Ordered them online and went to store to pick them up.
      Now Pep Boys changed water pump vendors and they are crap so I don't go there for water pumps.
      Advance Auto now sells Carquest water pumps and I heard they are good so I put one on my 2004 supercharged explorer and it is holding up just fine.
      So I get to Advance Auto (a couple towns away because my local doesn't have all the parts I need) and they try to give me this no name piece of sh1T water pump instead of the Carquest one I paid more for. Like they thought I wouldn't notice. Then the guy has the nerve to say "they are all made from the same place" and "they are just in different boxes".
      I wanted to pull this idiot across the counter and make him eat his words.

      I had them remove the waterpump from my bill and left. I will never go back to that store again.
      I ordered a Motorcraft water pump off eBay, only after making sure the part was new and in an unopened box, I don't want someone to swap in a cheap no name brand and then have it fail prematurely.
      On my 1998 4 door a cheap PepBoys one broke at the shaft and the fan hit the radiator putting a hole in it. Cheap Sh1t.

      I had two Motorcraft WP's when I started my radiator job two weeks back. They didn't look identical, one has no Ford emblem on it, but both are in Ford boxes, which are also not identical. Parts sourcing is much harder now than it used to be.

      Don, I hope that next WP they send you is a good one.

      The motorcraft unit from summit is actually cheaper than this one. If the next pump appears to be no good, that's the one they will be sending me. I have a feeling even these are reverb's though.

      Just because it says FoMoCo, doesn't mean it is. I paid a shop to install a genuine Ford Motorcraft water pump, and this is what they bought. I asked why it said made in China? I dunno, was the reply. Apparently, "Recommended by Ford", isn't the same thing as "Made by Ford". SMDH!

      I think that's a matching picture to one of the WP's I mentioned. That's just wrong to see people faking an OEM part and the box.

      Edit, I have that same Ford WP and box. It may have come from Rock Auto, I'm not sure. But I bought one from them last year, knowing I had another one someplace. I found them both when I was getting ready for my radiator project, and don't recall which is which.

      Well, the flowkoolers are on backorder till the 16th of next month, and the motorcrafts are on backorder till the 6th of next month. It sounds like Summit is going to send me a motorcraft and refund the difference. This is probably the best route (Making the general, and probably poor, assumption the motorcraft unit is actually motorcraft USA made).

      That sounds like the right choice. The seals are the most important items anyway, if the manufacturing is quality otherwise.

      That Flowkooler unit might be the best, but the parts have to be assembled well. You might be able to make use of that discard unit, but only if you can rework it without hurting the seals.

      I learned years ago that people were making fake or counterfeit parts for AC/Delco.
      I believe there was a news report on it too.
      They even tried to make the boxes look legit but you could see that there was a difference between the real AC Delco and the fake.
      This "Motorcraft" box you posted reminds me of what I saw back then.

      Makes me want to report them.

      Here's what I think I'll be getting:
      https://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/mof-pw343

      It turns out they want the defective flowkooler pump back. At least I only have to pay to ship it to a depot within Canada. Its still shitty to have to pay anything when its out of box defective.
