There are also loads of people on here with mid mounted engines, I don't recall any major cooling bother?
OK , but now you're talking about K series again, which is used in both mid and front engine setup from factory. Maybe Rover calculated the pump flow rate and it was enough to satisfy both setups, But these guys are talking about a Toyota engine and that's probably why they suggested an MR2 pump? Maybe?
