if it's not getting enough fuel, i can see it running too lean

I bet you it was a Northstar motor.

It was designed that in the event of a total coolant loss the engine can run on 4 cylinders(instead of 8) and act as an air cooled motor to get you off the road and to somewhere to refill your coolant.

If the dumb broad drove 200 miles like that it's her own damn fault then, temp gauge & warning light burning a hole in the cluster the whole way I bet.

Pump is good for 10 years 120,000 miles or something along that lines.

I've replaced at least 100 of them this year. About 2 months ago they released the final version and we've been seeming to have luck with them.

make sure they do the recall programing for the pump too, but usually any car that gets a pump gets programmed as well.

n54 block is based off the old m54 so chances are you didn't do any damage.
