Nah, thats the dyno's pump. I got an edelbrock edurashine to go with the serpentine kit. Ive got thermo fans but im just not 100% on electric water pumps yet.



I was thinking the same thing about electric pumps. Besides you still need to spin the alternator and PS pump.

It would be interesting to know the difference in hp from a belt driven pump and electric, considering the electric pumps extra current draw on the alternator.
