You will see the biggest gain with the fan. But I think the best part is you can run the water pump and fan to cool down between rounds.

With the electric H2O pumps being in use for several years now, they're so reliable you can use them on street/race machines. Used to be you'd only use them for short time runs like drag racing. The top name brands like Meziere and Moroso would be good choices. I've no feedback on the Proform and Aerospace Components pumps.
The above all replace the mechanical pump. Then you have the electric motor driven mechanical pumps for drag racing only, and remote pumps for 'other' applications.

I always have liked CSR brand.

The clear anodized one look pretty good with aluminum heads, intake, and valve covers.

Last year I had to order a replacement motor for my CSR. It took almost 4 months to get a motor. I'd try a different brand if I were you.

I don't want to get in the mix, and i'm not trying to sell anything, but i do sell ProComp, electric water pumps, they are dirt cheap compared to other brands, i've sold about a dozen of them with no problems, one guy i know has run one for over 5 yrs.
In fact Hammertime runs one with no problems also.
I have a CSI out in my shop that needs a motor, the replacment motor cost more than a new ProComp pump.

Just saying.

Zip.
