Does anyone know how to test this thing beside hot wiring it? When it's running can you see some flow movement in the reservoir? Is there a test mode?
Thanks

There is no test mode, but as you mentioned, you can jump the relay for the pump easily.
And yes, you should be able to see a lot of movement in the resevoir when the pump is moving.
With a stock tune, the pump does not always start as soon as the engine is started, so don't panic if that is what is happening.
It should start within a few minutes though.

I didn't know what the conditions were for it to run, I figured it had to get over a certain temperature. So it pretty much runs all the time, thanks.

If I remember right, over 70 degrees IAT2 and a short time delay.

Some tuners shorten the time delay or lower the minimum turn on temp. This is common.

With the temperature being so hot lately it will be easy to check out.
Thanks

any info on how to jump the relay? I cannot get mine to come on - and I am thinking that it is because of the air being so cold as it is... But, I would like to verify that it does work.

thank you very much. I am about a month away from piecing everything together and then getting it tuned. So, I am just trying to tweak everything out - as once the car is on the dyno I would not like to be finding out things. lol
Thanks alot.
