Anybody running an electric waterpump? If so, what are your thoughts and opinions on it? What kind of outside temps do you do your driving in?

how would you wire it up. because I have been thinking about the same thing? Would you make a small LED to tell you when it is on, or come on only if it is defective?

Not any more efficient or any less. Supposed to free up around 25HP. Not sure if that is crank HP or rwhp.

o ok so there really not anymore efficient as far as cooling?

They are actually more efficient since the pump goes full effect at every RPM, so sitting in traffic at idle the electric is doing a better job then the mechanical.

I haven't decided yet but most likey a light that was on when the pump was working and shut off or binked when it was not... :dunno:

Probably looking at 10rwhp at BEST. Naturally, it will depend on combinations, but 25HP is no where near accurate. I have a chrome version waiting to go on my motor. O0

If ya read what was wrote, you would see 25 crank hp. That is what I have read. Notice where I sais Not sure if it is crank HP or rwhp? http://www.meziere.com/index.php?pgName=wp346 says 11 hp.

I've seen people post gains of @5rwhp from these which is nice that they save a little hp but i'm more interested in the added cooling it can provide at idle and low rpm's
