Intercooler pump out again?

I replaced the intercooler pump last year around April, May now the thing seems to be acting up again. Same as last time intermittent loss of power. Is this going to be an on going issue? Has anybody found a better replacement than the ford pump? Any suggestions are more than welcome. I was thinking about looking into marine applications to see if I could find something that wouldn't need major modifications to work.

Company called Meziere sells a few remote or "universal" water pumps that some Crossfire owners have installed. Here is a link.

Edit: here is the actual pump's link

Check to be sure it just isn't the fuse that popped. 1 year of life seems way too short. If it did go bad, consider switching to a Johnson pump like myself and a few others have. Haven't heard of anyone complaining about short life with one yet.

I was actually looking at the meziere website last night, but I wasn't sure which pump would work. It's been raining for the last couple of days and I haven't gotten a chance (or I've been too lazy) to open the hood so I haven't checked the fuse yet ,though I kinda thought that if it is the fuse there must be a reason for it to blow anyway. If you could give me a part number for the Johnson pump I would appreciate it. Then I could make some comparison. Thanks for taking time to help out.
