    CSR electric water pump vs Stock ref: temp

    Does anyone have any info if switching from a stock water to electric will reduce coolant temps?.. If so what kind of temp diff might there be. If none maybe i will stay with a alum stock style pump.
    Application is SBC with Alum heads..

    thanks in advance

    temp

    Dont't know if there will be a temp. drop but you can cool it down quicker between rounds.

    not only will it cool down quicker it will relieve a few horses from
    the crank, they just tested a 355 sbc on horsepower tv and i was
    amazed it was like 10 horses, just the water pump, thats an
    easy 10 to pick up, and bigger and longer headers for some
    quick horsies, good luck :wink:

    big advantage is you can leave it running while the motor is off and save on the $12 gal racing fuel!!! i run mine on a temp switch so i don't have to baby sit while it cools or worry about killing the battery if i get to running my mouth and forget the fan and water pump are still running.
