    You have to buy a VTEC timing belt as well. The non-VTEC pump has fewer teeth so the VTEC pump will thow your timing off a little more every revolution.

    Ok, thanks LSVTEC, nice to see you are still alive. Will the VTEC water pump do a better job at keeping my engine cool? Thanks everyone.

    School is really kicking my ass this semester.

    It won't cool your engine any better. The difference is the VTEC pump is geared to spin slower than the LS pump. This allows the VTEC pump to keep pumping water at 8000 RPM+ when the LS pump can start to cavitate(sp?).

    So it actually does keep the engine cooler just at higher R's? Siorry to hear about school, but you just got to keep on keepin on!

    Yes except if you engine doesn't see over 7500-8000RPM then you won't see any benifit.

    I have not heard that about the B20 water pump. As far as I know the LS and B20 use the same water pump.

    I have heard that about the oil pump. Not about the water pump.
