    I am looking at throwing this Painless setup in the S10 to power my Holley Blue pump. How do I know if this relay is good enough for my pump? Should I just trust that since its Painless it will be fine?

    Just me, but I'd go to the wrecking yard and take a relay from an 80's/90's GM vehicle. Cut the wiring plug out with it, and wire it up yourself.

    That description says "weatherproof", not waterproof, if you were thinking along those lines as compared to a stock relay.

    Shouldn't cost you anywhere near $33, and the wiring is work you'll have to do anyways. My opinion. :)

    Most any Bosch type relay will handle the load. Try waytekwire.com
