As far as water pump cavitation, the pulleys would reduce/prevent it because cavitation happens at high rpms.
I live in south Texas and I'm a little worried about under powering my water pump in 100 degree weather. With the regular pulleys there has been a couple of times when I was sitting still in neutral and the engine was idling at 1800-1900 rpms just to run the water pump.
