A water pump is key to making your entire system work. The engines drive belt operates the water pump. As the belt turns, the pump turns. The blades on your pump then force coolant to flow through the engine and back to the radiator to be cooled by your radiator fan. Factory vehicles water pumps are designed to keep your factory engine cool. Your high performance engine creates higher heat, which increases the cooling demand. Make sure your system doesn’t fail on you and upgrade to a high performance water pump. A high performance water pump has thicker, stronger flanges and shafts. They also feature larger bearings to handle the stress of a higher performance engine. Not only do you gain a better functioning cooling system by upgrading your water pump, you can also clean up your engine bay more. Many aftermarket water pumps have aluminum, chrome plated, or powder coated. Additionally, aluminum water pumps will help reduce weight.
