Davies Craig Geelong Revival: Subaru WRX STI - Electric Water Pumps And Thermatic® Fans
The Geelong Revival is a huge motoring event that brings car watchers and car lovers alike to the city of Geelong once a year. But it’s not just a motorshow, it’s a chance for companies and car enthusiasts to share their stories.
Davies Craig had a strong presence at this year’s event and took time out to speak to some of the people about their cars.
Greg Bass is the owner of tuning house, Top Torque Performance. Greg was at the Geelong Revival with the company’s 2004 Subaru WRX STI. The company campaigns the car in the Australian tarmac rally championship, an event that tests cars to the limits and requires some serious cooling.
There’s a Hi-Po 2.0L turbo four under the bonnet that pumps 380kW to all four paws via a six speed sequential gearbox. Greg specified a Davies Craig Electric Water Pump (EWP®) and Thermatic® Fan for this powerhouse machine and says the extra control over the flow through the engine has been of real benefit. Greg also enjoys the ability to have the system flow at his discretion and says it’s been completely trouble free since the combination was installed. So successful has been the install that they’ve decided to fit the exact same equipment to another of their cars to ensure it, too, can maintain top performance and withstand engine heating..
