If you're reusing the stock accessories from the 91 (serpentine belt) then you need a reverse-rotation pump, long style (all serpenite setups are long style to my knowlege).
Not sure who makes a really nice aluminum high flow unit for that application becuase I've never gone looking for one. Stock parts house rebuilds have always kept my engines cool just fine. Including a rather healthy 400 in a 3rd gen.

Yes. I beleive Chevy refers to them as reverse-rotation pumps. Any pump designed for a 91 V8 Camaro application will be what you need. Then it's just a matter of how much you want to spend.
