    Get an electric water pump while you have the chance.

    The difference is that the electric doesn't draw it's power mechanically from the engine (cause it's electric ); therefore, hp is freed up to be able to be put to the wheels.

    Meziere makes a very good one.

    I have two water pumps for sale. One has 24,000 miles with no known problems. The other is off my personnel car, with 75,000 miles, not a problem at all. Would sell both for $100 or $50 each. Going with EWP when I finish my H/C

    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    Electric won't last as long as mechanical. If it is a dd expect to get stranded eventually.

    I thought the electric water pumps only free up like 5-7 rwhp?... In my opinion if you're not starving for that extra inch don't install one, just get a mechanical one.

    EWP flows more, especially at low RPM's keeping you running cooler. Edelbrock and evans make a nice aftermarket traditional style. Not sure about the evans but Edelbrock claims 20% more flow than OEM

    I think mine is going out. Its making a cha, cha sound..lol. Thought it was the tensioner and changed that already so, I think the water pump is now the culprit.
