    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?

    what are the benefits from electrics vs pulley driven ones????? Is it just the fact that they are not pulley driven????

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

    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.

    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

    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
