    I would just get the replacement one. Do you need some sort of high flow one or something? 175 bones! Sheesh!

    A rebuilt stocker for $30 should work just fine.

    If you don't have any particular cooling problems from high hp engine or big-block swap (btw, if you fill in your profile with enginer/drivetrain info, etc, it will be easier to help), a stock replacement should be fine, and much less money.

    If you need more performance out of your water pump, you may want to take a look at Stewart pumps. IMO, they are the best out there (used by NASCAR and others). Also, they have a great cooling-system-related forum, moderated by Mr. Stewart himself. Loads of info. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.stewartcomponents.com>http://www.stewartcomponents.com</A>
