I have to chime in on this one...

Like stated an electric water pump is designed for short uses...

Now if you are serious about making more power by getting rid of parasitic loss you can do it.

I dont know exactly how the trucks work cause I just got my truck not to long ago and never really looked under the hood more then to change the oil so I wouldnt know specifcly.

However I can relate this to what alot of the guys in the car club do to our firebirds/camaros.

Remove: AC...Smog pump/emissions...water pump(replace with electric)...fan(replace with electric)...all pulleys are replace with lightweight components...usually underdrive pulleys will help when you do all of this also.

Honestly tho...for the gains you get from doing all that its only worth it if all you do is race the vehicle.
