We do it in our race cars, allows us to keep water circulating to cool engine off after a race while she is standing in the pits.

Remove the impeller from the water pump, benefit of electric pump is that you don't get cavitation at high rpm. Pump is installed in the water line.

It seems obvious to me that the water pump will be circulating a lot of water at high revs - for example driving down the highway when you have a lot of ram air over the radiator and don't need max. cooling. It also seems obvious that low water volume circulation will occur at low revs - for example sitting in traffic on a hot day when max. cooling is needed. Add to this the location of the water pump in a Montreal - requiring engine removal for replacement - it seems a no-brainer to me that an electric pump is the way to go. What do you think?

Ahh, now I remember, this is the same pump what Manfred Kopp made many years ago here in Germany.

Hmmm... I am not sure, Gabor. The offer is still on Manfred's page, he is still doing his job + club engagement, he drives many years a Montreal and they have a GTV8 also he was on int. Montreal Meeting last year... How old could it be? Just ask him further details.
Bye from frosty center of Germany
