the only thing i can think of would be a performance water pump(high volume) being chrome would make the engine run hot. not because of the chrome but because high volume water pumps are meant to be under-driven to free up hp and still flow enough to cool. i didnt under-drive mine and the coolant flowed too fast and the motor ran at 210*. the only rationale i can find is that someone figured their chrome hv pump was making the engine run hot because it was chrome. you ever see full-out chrome big blocks in the hot rod mags? they don't have any trouble so i'm sure you won't either.
