Re: electric water pump and fans
I would steer away from the electric water pump, but the electric fan is a plus. Unfortunately though, unless you know how to fabricate, I haven't found a way to attach an electric fan to an OEM radiator besides the stems that stick thru the radiator core. If you were to switch to a BeCool aluminum radiator you would not only get much better cooling, they make brackets that attach on the top and the bottom of the radiator for a nice look. The core stems are ok and I had them in my OEM rad until I went with a BeCool. One other thing, with an electric fan you will need a shroud. I didn't think this at first and if you call BeCool the guy I talked to will tell you that they think shrouds cause air cavitation if you use a shroud, but I have experienced much better cooling with my Flex-A-Lite model # FLE-180 and BeCool radiator #62009-Automatic Natural and #60009-Manual Natural or #61009-Manual Polished. They make kits that come with the fan and relays, but I went with the Flex-A-Lite fan and I love it.
