If you do ever 'cook' an impeller you'll be getting bits of it stuck in the cooling system for ages afterwards - any tricks for flushing for you engineers? I had problems with an engine that had been run in surf off an sandy beach and the housing for the impeller was scoured, if you're in any doubt change this as well as it drove me mad for 2 years before I figured it out and numerous impellers. Now good as new... Also have an old Suzuki with a 13 year+ impeller in it is this a record?

Yes it does effect the water pressure but only by a very small amount, I cant remember the figure. But its not enough to effect the engine.
