No, that is a standard rotation pump. It won't work on your car, you need a reverse rotation pump.

I searched the site for your car's water pump and they did not list any.

I personally don't recall what rotation the 95s are. When you look at summit. Use the filter tools on the left side of the page on summit racing. As long is the year is correct it will fit. You can also looks at the parts on websites and they will give you the range that the pumps fit. For instance, if it say 87-93 or 87-95 then you should have your answer.

Cool. It even says high flow design in the description. I didn't verify year or anything, but looks good to me.

I would run stock temp thermostat. 185-195 will suffice. I think stock is 193*.Some people get away with running lower but its not good for the life of your motor. Engine oil is designed to lubricate best at above 180*. If you run a cold thermostat it will take a long time to fully warm up the engine. Which will shorten the life of your motor. What you can do is run a high flow thermostat. I use a high flow miloden that I picked up from summit also for 10-12$ I think.
