Yes all that you've stated is true, BUT..... you have to admit that its all relevant to the way it was built and the quality of parts used. LIke i wouldnt buy it if it was made by APC but if some reliable company like lets say SKUNK built it ...i would. Besides...I'm sure you can monitor it in some way to see if its working or not.crashandburn said:Reliability is more important than efficiency for something as critical as a water pump on a street car. I don't care what the manufacturer says -- there are so many more failure modes for an electric pump than a mechanical pump driven straight off the timing belt (blown fuse, alt/battery problems, connector corrosion, motor failure, etc. PLUS all the same mechanical pump parts that could fail).
That's only relevant to the quality of the pump itself -- the best electrical pump in the world won't save you if the car's electrical system should happen to let it down.SK Honda 7 said:you have to admit that its all relevant to the way it was built and the quality of parts used.
