electric water pump

Does anybody use and is it streetable?
I'm thinking that running an electric water pump and electric fan between runs at the track will coll the motor much quicker than just the fan?

Thoughts?

Yes they are streetable. I've used both CSR and Moroso electric pumps. A good electric pump and electric fan will cool the engine better and quicker.

My daily driver has 16 cylinders and 4400hp @ 1000 rpm....

Neither one is needed. A factory fan pulls alot of air. The reason for the pump and fan is to free up about 10 or so horsepower and cool the engine off quicker between rounds.

yeah but is the few hp needed when it see's the track everyonce in a while..ecspically considering the cost of a eletric pump and a nice electric fan!

So Darrell between the electric water pump and fan, you can free up about 10 hp? In your opinion d you think its worth it? They come with a sensor or something to let you know if their about to fail right?

those are serious money combined, if you think $500 or so for 10hp is worth it..have a ball!!

I run an electric pump and fan on all of my cars. I think its worth it but there are alot of other things I'd do before I'd spend the money on the fan and pump. Besides the small horsepower gain and ability to cool the engine off quicker between rounds, the engine compartment will look nicer. As far as failing, does your mechanical water pump and fan come with a sensor that lets you know when they are about to fail? No? Then why would the electric pump and fan?

Since I already own the fan, I may as well indulge and get the electric water pump. Any tricks or other needed items to eliminate the existing mechanical one?

You will need to wire the pump and get a shorter belt and reroute it.
