    Here's a picture of the cooler and radiator hoses...

    For what it's worth I have about 750 miles now on my DD since my Whipple was installed now and I see my water pump pulley is starting to wobble at idle, which means either the pulley is bent (unlikely) or the bearing it wearing out and soon it will start to leak and is probably causing some premature belt wear since it's wobbling like a 1/4". Despite the belt really making very little contact with the water pump, the tension might be enough to cause some damage.

    If there's enough tension to hurt the water pump, I would assume the alternator could be at risk too.

    I'm proactively having the pump replaced this week (on my own dime) while it's in having a Corsa system put in and will continue to monitor.

    Thanks for the info. Really hope I don't have any more problems. :P
