    General consensus is replace the plastic impeller pump with a metal one to avoid future breakages.

    Most indi's advise that replica parts are made to OEM quality anyway so I wouldnt worry too much about OEM parts. I never have and touch wood, never had am issue.

    Not sure if it's the case now, but I remember when I changed the water pump in my mk4 Golf, VW only supplied pumps with plastic fins & GSF supplied pumps with metal or plastic fins.
