Isn't it better to have warm fluid that pumps easier than cold/thick fluid?

I just found a delete option for Ford 4cly engines on another forum. The 2008 Escape has the old engine with electric power steering so there is a bracket and idler pulley that can be used on any other car with the same engine. Idler is same dimension as PS pump so you don't even need a new belt. If I find one in a JY I'm going to give it a try but I'm not willing to spend $80+ to get a new one
