I was quoted 275$...or 150$ if I bring the part.
I could get a cardone or gates water pump for $60 shipped...
Anyone know which brand comes with a metal impeller? And would you change the thermostat at the same time?
I know with the HEMI, the MOPAR part seems to be the best quality part. As for replacing the thermostat at the same time, you may as well as the system will need to be drained for the water pump service anyway. It's a cheap part and good preventative maintenance.
