I see all these hardcore electrical setups, seems as if someone would've thought to place a second water impeller on the engine with the serpentine belt providing power.

probably not very practical or you would see something on the market. just a thought

you'd fry the impeller unless you had a way to allow water to flow through it all the time(not just when filling), and then you'd be sapping HP

i've been trying to convince someone to use one for a while, but nobody seems to want to shell out the $600 for the pump...
