I agree with this completely. The water pump is really critical to the survival of the engine. Add first take all the other parasitic draws off the engine. Power steering, alternator, air conditioner.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I see new cars having 2 pumps. One mechanical and one electric. Have they put the smallest pump possible and then use electric when needed?

The auxiliary pump is there to circulate coolant after shut down. The mechanical pump is variable so no need to boost it with an electric one.

in my Tacoma truck I always wanted to move the radiator and the battery to the bed.
I had manual steering and it seemed that the lighter the front end the less effort I needed in the parking lot. it originally had power steering but the pump broke same with the ac
I think an electric water pump would have helped.
that was a stripped down truck
