That's actually a great idea for us v8 guys with limited space up front also. We could trim the front of the water pump down also to get some more clearance. Yea, we are paying to play, that's for sure. On the electric water pump I'm just not sold on them with a daily driver. 8 more amps being drawn at idle with AC, fan on full, headlights, etc. Complexity, risk when its well below freezing......Just scary.
