Absolutely a prime benefit is the cooling while in the pits, etc......

The pump comes with it's own temp controller so the stock stat is not needed unless you keep the stock housing as it diverts the water properly.

We are going to build a test setup when we get the cage, seam welding, etc done, got a good start on it today, up on the rotisserie, just about done removing all the weight we can, main hoop done, etc.....

I have no way of knowing how well water flows once inside the engine but the stock water pump and stat are not very impressive looking in their flow design. What we are going to do will flow far better, I just hope enough to make a difference but I am not schooled in hydrodynamics.
