As long as your cooling system is in good shape I see no problem with using the 16ve pump. What radiator are you running.

Currently I have a 55mm Thick fully alloy, However, it maybe not stay depending on clearance of the turbo and/or Manifold

Use any of the VE pumps. Youll be Ok. ..

Ideally, the regular VE pump is better for daily driving and sitting in traffic on hot days, while the N1 pump should perform better on a track car that regularly sees high RPM's for prolonged periods of time.
In reality, I doubt either one will make much of a noticeable difference over the other.

agree with matej
I am running ve pump on vet, with one 10" davis craig fan. I used to overheat on long drives (1.5hr highway , then in traffic , 32-35 deg c days), I installed the tridon ,I am sure they are billion, high flow thermostat (only $36) 30% more coolant flow, eliminating the need to use a cooler temperature thermostat, as well as an oil cooler and I haven't had an issue. However I will be fitting the other fan before summer.
