Re: Electric Water Pump
That may be true about the alternator draw to run the electric water pump, but only if you are runnig a very low amp alternator. Anyone running any alternator other than a 6cyl with no a.c. is not going to see a difference. I installed an electric fan that puts out 3985cfm and I could definately feel the difference in power. The car runs cooler and with my 250amp alternator it doesn't even phase the alternator. You have to remember that the alternator is not working at full output all the time. Only when every accessory is on is the alternator working that hard to where he may experience a HP drain and with a decent alternator that is a thing of the past.
