are electric water pumps that good?
do they make much of a differance?
would it be worth putting one in a daly driver?
or are they mainly race equipment?

Electric Water Pump

You don't even want an electric water pump for a daily driver. The added electical load on your alternator also robs power from the motor.
Remove your fan & put a heavy duty electric fan on the radiator. When cruising down the road, the elec. fan should not even come on. But you will need to install a thermal switch in lower radiator hose, or fitting in bottom tank of radiator, like a lot of MFR's started years ago.
