Cool electric water pump

ok im considering switching over to an electric water pump. ive heard mixed revews on them. some say that theres no difference in cooling and others say that they cool way more than the belt driven pumps. should i go with one or just keep the belt one?

no difference in cooling, way overpriced...

the only people who benefit from an electric waterpump are hardcore drag racers, who might need additional cooling while their car isnt running.

Electrics are pretty much shunned in street cars

Pro-Form is a Michigan company who does all it's building of parts it sells 'offshore'
In general the quality of the stuff they sell is poor.
Cheap and poor quality......

all from hear say, those who shun it are often ones who have 0 experience having used one in such a manner, many of the new BMW'S in the 3 and 5 series all now run elec water pumps, and they are 100% street cars

You must be speaking of the cars that use the electric pumps as an auxiliary unit... Because if you are not, I fear you are gravely mistaken.

i.e. audi, vw, bmw

ok mjr46, what would be your opinion of putting one on a car thats basically driven on the weekends for short distances? and possibly stepping it to a Moroso brand instead.

Michael, having your car the way you want is your choice. Come on back later and let us be informed.

nope I'm not mistaken, the aux pumps you speak of are kicker pumps on the older bmw's for the heater so the heater has good output at idle, when those go bad customer complains of low heat output when sitting at stops, starting in either 06 or 08 some of the 3 series or 5 series had elec pumps , trust me I'm not gravely mistaken, you might wanna research it, google 2006 and up e90, e91 e92 and or e93 bmw electric water pump, I've done 3-4 of these so far, there is a tsb on troubleshooting for a failed unit, and these are not aux pumps, it's the main pump, sits on the passanger side below compressor
