I put an OES (Original Equipment Supplier) water pump in. Out came a composite with 96K miles and in went the same thing. My thinking is that a composite pump impellers can be held to much tighter tolerances than a metal or cast one. So efficiency should be better.

Now if I was to use EVANS NPG+ in MA with -20F temps in the winter, I would have used a metal one so that there is no chance of breakage pumping slush around until it warms up.
Ever wonder why 5 series electrical issues are common and complicated.. Spend time here and you will understand why.
