Waiting for the hoses to show, I called them last week and they said were having website troubles. The owner said I should have them by Sat......nothing yet. When they arrive I'll post a couple pics. I also am designing a 1 piece bracket using CAD, but my time is really limited lately.

I am really curious to see what you come up with on the CAD, like I said I had just bought some steel plate at Lowes, cut it using some electric shears, and beat it over an anvil (decided low tech and not very refined!!!!). Are you going to have it CNC cut or something like that?

One issue I still have is that my reservoir mounting bracket is just a little (1.5 cm) too low. Even though the reservoir's fluid port is technically higher than the pump's fill port, the brake hose I have connecting the two has a slight rise in it, so I might have to remake my reservoir bracket.

Oh, and status update, after driving with this for a couple weeks, no heating issues on the pump. I live in Houston, TX, and we've had a couple of 87F-90F days, and even in bumper to bumper traffic in which the engine temp hit 210 on my dash gauge, I haven't had a problem with SMG at all.

I have noticed that after some spirited driving, in 90F conditions, that the pump does still get warm, but nothing like 212F (100C) at which it would shut off. I can still touch it, but it does feel warm. I don't want to guess, but if I were, I would say it's reaching perhaps as high as 125F (above that I think it would hurt my hand more). I will get a thermometer on it next day it gets hot and I can run the car hard.

Hey Guys,

Just following on from a couple weeks ago. Guys has a 2004 RHD M3.
Swapped the pump the the LHS bin and states fluid temps dropped significantly. Supposedly was in the 70's in traffic and use to get kicked into neutral (89'+) on hot days. It now is yet to exceed 47'.

Some braided lines and a CSL reservoir is all it took. Plug had enough length to be redirected without any need for extending and supposedly an un-used stud for the factory bracket to hold the accumulator.
