FlowKooler water pump prevent engine overheating. Each impeller is designed to generate higher flow rates and increase system pressure. Increasing coolant flow rate through the block reduces the cycle time between the engine and the radiator providing more opportunity for heat exchange. When flow rate is maximized, the higher flow rates raise engine block pressure to prevent the formation of steam pockets in the water jacket and the vapor barrier that can cause hot spots on cylinder walls.
Each of our billet aluminum impellers is precision machined to achieve tighter clearances between the vanes and the casting volute. Each is shrouded to contain the flow. This design combination generates higher flow rates that reduce the cycle time between the source and sink. It is that simple.
Our impeller designs achieve a more efficient flow curve to conserve valuable horsepower. Less power used to move the coolant through your system means more power you have to move your tires down the road.
Higher flow rates help cool at lower speeds but they also raise the block pressure at higher rpm. Build that pressure prevent hot spots & steam pockets from forming on cylinder walls. Higher pressure also prevents early detonation and reduces the onset of cavitation. All good stuff!
Your coolant begins to deteriorate almost immediately. FlowKooler CNC machines each impeller from corrosion resistant 6061 billet aluminum and coats each one with a Type II Class II military grade anodize surface coating.
Believe it or not, all seals are supposed to weep slightly to lube the faces. Chronic drips indicate a failure is coming and its likely due to overheating.Read More

If you find water pouring out of the block chances are your holes did not line up. We put this picture together to help those of you have switched and swapped your small block Ford timing chain cover.
Occasionally we have an inquiry from someone who describes overheating at high speed conditions. We walk through the possible causes:Read More
