Post Electric Water pumps

Come on, lets hear it.

I've been doing a lot of reading on these lately, but have yet to hear it from people that arent trying to sell me the product.

What I do know is that their are some out there that claim quite a bit of flow and very long life spans ( compared to the old ones that you would only use for race applications ).

I cant think of an easier way to bolt on at least 15-30hp for $200.

Gimme some pros and cons here...Im too curious

Thumbs down

Here's a con:
Some people do not always pay attention to gauges.

When that electric motor burns out, oooopppps!

I have seen them go out quite often, and they are expensive to replace all the time.

The man I get advise from builds drag cars for people, and recommends to NOT use them.

Thats all I know about them, NOT MUCH, but I trust this man and his extreme knowledge.

Electric water pumps work fine for limited street driving, but if this is a dailey driven vehicle, I would recommend using a good aluminum high flow pump like Milodon or Edelbrock. Scoggin Dickey sells them for around $150.00.www.SDPC2000.com
