Water pump and rear mount radiator?

Can the stock S6 water pump push enough water flow to allow for a rear mount radiator?

Don't think so. I would use electrical water pumps. I put pumps as normal cars with a rar radiator have atleast 2 pumps.

Gotta pay to play, but it's best to use an electric water pump in rear-mount systems.

Double checked with Bill Washburn to see what he runs on his 240 Maxi. He uses the Davies Craig 115 ewp and microprocessor controller. He's pushing a lot of power so I'm assuming he's flowing plenty of water to keep that thing cool.

Davies Craig

Hope that helps.

Omg my spelling is horrible on my prev post.

What i meant to write is. Normal cars with rear radiator has one pumpe before and one pump after radiator. Like the Lotus Elise.

The Veyron has like 16 pumps or so

But the stock one would not do at all.
