Thinking that EWP setup...

Plan is put EWP near of radiator lower output.
Then it pumps water to adapter (which replace oem waterpump) and then water goes like oem. Under valleypan, both blocks and rise to cyl heads.

Between heads there it's that aluminium pipe that collect both heads to one.
That goes to radiators upper hose.

Also In that aluminium pipe, i take small hose for expandtank (oem e30 M3 part in oem location)

Small pipe goes also from radiators highest place to expandtank.
That should make it self beeding like oem M3 S14 setup are.

So i try to controll temps with EWP and try to make so simple setup that is possible.

Any ideas ? is there any broblems?

More info please? I've been running a LiFePo4 battery for 6-7 years now. It has always been OK with Honda and BMW OEM alternators, but I have been checking the alternator output carefully to ensure not more than 14.2v output. I do want a lighter alternator though and all the ones I have found have been too high voltage output with no adjustability.

1.5kg including all the wiring (too long) and plugs:



Made with 16 of these cells (4S4P):
