Thumbs up Billet Water Pump Inlet Adapter - Pre-Order

I came up with a billet water pump inlet adapter to allow more room in and around where most choose to put their turbo and or charge piping. I've had a number of people of time ask about it and it's been something we've considering offering in addition to our existing products. This is a bit more elegant solution of cutting/flipping/welding the factory piece.

The front is tapped 1" NPTF and the rear is tapped 3/8" NPTF so you can use an off the shelf Meziere water pump fitting for your radiator hose along with bringing in your heater hose or turbo coolant line into the back side.

This kit will be comprised of:
  • (1) Water Pump Inlet
  • (1) Water Pump Inlet Gasket
  • (2) Metric Screws
Note: This pricing does not include the Meziere water pump fitting that I used to screw into the adapter or the radiator hose/tubing. These are both items that I'm going to be working on kitting with this, but are not available from me at this time.

Pre-Order Pricing will be set at $100 shipped and I'll need at least 5 pre-orders to get this going.

Images of prototype shown below.

that puts the outlet in the same spot as a flipped mixing manifold. Id be in if it was pointing straight in to the water pump rather than making the 90 towards the front of the car

For the love of god make those o-ringed AN threads instead of NPT.

Otherwise, nice.

Tim,

I had initially designed these with the intent on using the Meziere NPT -> hose fitting and I didn't think that they had an ORB -> hose fitting available but it appears they do now. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll see if I might be able to implement.

Excellent. Stay tuned, and hopefully we get can a first run going shortly.

You're going to have one of everything from our catalog soon, haha.

Thanks as always for your support!

Do you have a CNC lathe? ORB to hose barb would be simple, compared to the pump adapter. Make all the things! Plus you could keep the ORB side short. Typical ORB thread length is way more than necessary.

We actually take Fragola ORB to AN fittings and modify them here. Shorten the straight thread length, modify ID (bore out, taper/profile, add radii, etc). On other applications, we make the entire fitting here. This allows you to get creative with geometry.

I might be in if you're changing to AN/ORB (on both ends). Let me know.

Hey, no sweat. Now...just need those pre-made wiring kits for the GM coils... (hint, hint - I suck at electrics, so I buy that kind of stuff whenever I can)

We haven't started the programming yet so I don't know why we couldn't go that route. I'm happy to take input from you guys to develop better products!

My partners father-in-law has a machine shop which handles most of our parts. I've got the know how but not the space for such a toy, at least for now. I've used the same concept of buying Fragola fittings and machining the big end into something I desired before. Sometimes it's rather cost effective.

I think you'll need to do -12AN to get the size you need for the front. Bigger thread then the NPT you were planning. Wall thickness ok or will you need to move the port centerline out as well as increase the height from the mating surface a bit?

I might be interested as well. Have to measure radiator clearance

Give me a bit to research the thread geometry for these and I will see what I can do. Based on the responses here I think I will be pursuing this route over the NPT as initially conceptualized.
