    Anyone running an electric water pump with heat?
    Have mine installed, but have yet to figure out how/if im going to be able to run the heat, as there are not outlets for the heater hoses on the pump

    Reliability has always kinda worried me with electric ones, I'd love to try one though. Anyone recommend them?

    I considered that as well but with my stomach crap its not likely that I will be taking any long road trips, or any road trips really so that was not a problem. My gauges are digital and have upper limit warnings set up on them so they will alarm when it gets too high. Finally though I have a friend here in town that has ran a them on a couple of cars that he said he had for years each and never had an issue. He loved it on his track car to keep it running with the motor off to cool it between runs.

    Reliability is the only reason I haven't purchased one. I'd hate to be half way between Louisville and myrtle beach and it goes out!!!! Lol

    On a serious note id imagine that one would not last long if used in such a way. These were meant for race cars where they are used for short periods then shut off. Not for trips where they are ran for hours upon hours.
    [MENTION=14656]Musturd[/MENTION], do you ever drive yours on any really long trips!?!?
