One of the GP guys from WCBF was running an electric water pump, and while he was in the staging lanes he'd turn the engine off, with the water pump and radiator fans on and it would cool his engine. I thought it was pretty slick.

I love those electric water pumps, maybe one day my car will have one. Sweet mod for the track also.

The only thing that worries me about them is reliability.
When the motor dies.....and it will die eventually.....it will likely be at the most inconvenient time and then Napa won't have one on the shelf.

He had a $200 (not sure if that is the amount) credit from intense that he had to spend and he didn't want to do a cam, so that was the only thing we could think of.
