    VX220 - electric water pump?

    Reading total vaux, they reckon teh vx220 has a electric water pump system for cooling? Is that right? I'm not sure, but would love to adapt something like that to the astra

    Charge cooler?
    Aparantly it's got a closed system electric water pump for the cooling of the engine itself not the intercooler, i'm talking the 2.2L one as well

    fair enough! I haven't got a clue then
    Might still be worth a look on the vx220 site though, there are some nice cars on there!

    Yes it does to circulate the water onto the radiator which is mounted up front.

    Its mouned underneath at the front left hand side of the engine bay.

    Yes it does.

    The electric pump is just used to provide extra water flow to get the water upto the front rad as its a fair distance.
