Type of vehicle? Condition of the cooling system?

I think chrome pumps look hokey. Nothing like the stock original painted the right color

water "burping" from radiator with the cap off isn't unusual, how does it work with cap on?

if running 10 degrees warmer puts you in danger of overheating, put in lower temp thermostat......

the chrome pump may be off of a lower horsepower rated engine or a different model year than the aluminum one and have slightly smaller impellor vanes, fewer vanes, etc., hence a little slower circulation.....
