I would not run a electric water pump on a street driven vehicle or you will have a a Hotrod (pun intended). I don't believe they move enough water for sufficent cooling during road driving. I may be wrong on this, but I don't think so. It should be fine for a drag race vehicle where there is a cool down period between runs.

Stude is right, if you check out the adds for most electric pumps they do not recomend them for use on the street, however most of my freinds with drag cars use them with good results. CSI is a top brand here in the States. Ask the vendor to supply you with the GPM pumping specs(gallons per minute). Do you guys in The Z land use gallons or liters?
