I did I very simple proof of concept functional check.
Took the cooler put almost enough water to cover the foot valve and about 3 to 4lb ice in it, ran 10 feet of 1/4 inch line to a Y splitter then stuck 10 more feet on each end of the Y then just looped everything together where I could sit on it and ran the 2 ends of the Y back to the cooler. It works a lot better than I thought it would.
I am using about 1/3 to 1/4 of line I am planning on using in the bottom part of the seat.
I want the seat cooler to have the ability to make the seat occupier uncomfortably cold on a 109'F day, then just turn down the pump cycle timer as needed or just turn it off all together.
After this test I would be shocked if it didn't work extraordinarily well.
The cooler should hold at least 20lb of ice.

In other news I picked up my upgrade water injection pump, 2gpm 60psi Delanvan "assembled in USA" extreme duty 12v pump. I thought it was $90, rang up at $150. It was in the wrong spot, just like everything else on a shelf at tractorsupply.
The bigger pump is to handle the expanded water injection roll I have planned.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
