As the tile states , has anyone done a raw water to closed loop/ half system conversion ?

currently have a 2008 vlx with raw water but want to fit a heat exchanger to allow us to run in salt water 

 do i need another water circulation pump on the lcr engine  ? its got the crank driven raw water pump and the belt driven one off the timing case already 

anything else i need to change? thermostat ? 

 thanks luke
