The pump will fail before 75k miles.

The pump failure is surprising reliable, its happened to me twice between 62 and 72 on different cars.

I am trying to decide what fan to go with on the S54 at the moment.

I figure the fan is a big part of why the pump fails.
Mpire, any reason you're not doing the fan delete mod? I've been debating going this route on my M54.
