I'm not looking to flow a lot more than the factory pump. That's why I'm curious about the factory gpm. There are a few reasons I'm considering going electric. First is cost. a factory water pump is close to $300. From a quick search, the top of the line electric water pumps are going for almost half that much. Some electric water pumps I looked at are only $40! Second is I want more control over flow of coolant. I like the ability to keep water flowing even with the engine off. The type of racing I do doesn't give enough time to cool down. Another benefit will be a small gain in overall horsepower because the engine won't be turning a water pump.
