    reverse rotation, but same direction of flow. Saw some cheap ebay aluminum versions the other day. I think my buddy has the same set-up. I will chime him on what brand he used.

    Get a pump listed for the IROC. It's re reverse rotation pump.

    1st Gen Small blocks 1955-1999 have the same mounting pattern.

    Water pumps were short style / standard rotation from 1955-1968

    Long Style Standard Rotation from 1969-1999.

    There were exceptions with the Corvette and Monzas in the mid 70's up that had short height but the mounting was still the same.

    Factory Serpentine systems used long style water pumps with reverse rotation from 82-99 on Camaro's, Caprices, and the C/K trucks. Even the 4.3 S-10's and Astro vans had the long pump with reverse rotation. Any of these will be fine for you application.

    Kamikaze,
    I don't think the serpentine systems showed up on the Camaros until 1988. The pre 88 TPI engines still had V belts.

    Order one for an 89 IROC. I used an aluminum Edelbrock with my system.
