I’m in the process of fully upgrading my cooling system. I plan on getting the Mishimoto radiator for AOD Transmission along with the Mishimoto silicone hoses, I’m replacing the stock fan shroud , fan clutch and blades with brand new ones. I’m stuck at which type of water pump should I get. My car is a daily driver and sees mainly stop and go stoplight traffic etc. Engine is bone stock and plan on keeping it that way for a long time.

The high flow ones feature a redesigned impeller wheel. The only pumps that feature that, that i am aware of are the Edelbrock Victor Series pump Pump, and the GMB 125-1560P pump. There might be others with a revised impeller

I beleive GMB makes the pumps for Wieland as well

Edit: Flowkooler also has a revised impeller design

I have the Flowkooler pump with its fancy golden impeller.
I also got the Tefba radiator hose filter. Old blocks scale some rust continuously which might make that new radiator unhappy.
It has a screen and a magnet. Magnets doing most the work and screen catching a little silicon.
Even the newest Fox windsor's are getting to be 35 yrs old.
Higher flow and pressure means everything else must be up to snuff in the cooling system.

looking up the Tefba radiator hose filter. it appears to no longer have a magnet, and at $72 for a plastic housing kinda pricey.

Yuppers overpriced a bit, but is radiator insurance. I've removed a 1/4 cup worth of rust scale in first year
Thats after a good chemical flushing and a back flushing of radiator when was removed from car.

Also I had used the pressure washer to clean block water passages when swapping heads and the amount of casting sand /sludge from around the bottom of cylinders was amazing. Stained the drive way.
Had engine back together and running in 24 hours so wasn't worried about the water on cylinder walls.

Much easier to service than the Gano version.

Also got me a sacrificial zinc anode that hangs from a ring under radiator cap. Been watching it dissolve slowly over the years.
