how did it go?
Fit perfect. No clearancing/grinding at all. The closest surface is about 1/8".
So to summarize, anyone with an LSX using the MSD intake and the Front Runner system from Vintage can use an Edelbrock water pump # 8896 with no modifications. Of course, the Eddy isn't the cheapest pump out there...
Good to know, are you going to enlighten VA? Do you have any pictures?
I'll post some pictures when I get the pulley installed.
I don't think VA would be interested. Acknowledging this would just reduce their sales. I'd be willing to bet, after talking to them, that they already knew. I can't be the first one to present this problem to them. The MSD/LSX platform is just too popular...
You’re right, you can’t possibly be the first to address this.
FWIW....I’m not a VA fan either after dealing with them with my AC kit
glad it worked out
A few pictures: On a side note, as stated earlier, the Edelbrock pump fit perfect with the MSD and NW 102, but the main bracket in the VA kit that ties everything together had some interferences with the pump. It took some effort, but I was able to make it work and almost all of the grinding was on the back side, so it can't be seen. The other photos are of the 0.210" spacer I made to put behind the pulley.
Looks great, it’s nice to have the skills and equipment to do what have!
I've been silently following this. Glad to hear it worked out.
I really like that MSD intake and was hoping this could be solved
Yeah, I've been lucky to that point. Where I used to work (32 years) there was an old machinist (the real kind - not CNC) that took a liking to a young engineer and we developed a friendship that lasted many years. He taught me tons of shop skills and I routinely made my own prototypes in his shop. I still do contract work with that company and able to sneak in some parts of my own from time to time.
