    I wouldn't waste the $500 or so on an electric water pump. Just not worth the 5 or so HP you will pick up. With you having a cam, the LS6 intake would benefit you a lot, 15-20HP. I might be missing it, so forgive me if I am, but sub frame connectors would also be a great addition for you. Save the rest of the money for a real rearend or a nice set of heads

    I can't emphasize enough to you how much better gains you would see from the intake versus the water pump plus a $$$ savings.

    I figured I would eat my words on the SFCs

    Not a dumb question, but I honestly don't know. Probably not enough to notice one way or the other though.

    An underdrive pulley might be something else you want to consider. You could probably pick both up for $500 ish

    i would look into some gears, yes your 2.73 are great for the highway, but the extra umph outta a lower gear would be much more worth it. and some cheeser wheels and some stickies
