I´m not up to date with the waterpump situation nowadays. If I get an aftermarket unit, is it a lottery whether it has a metal impeller or plastic? Or are they all metal now? What brand of rollers and tensioner are recommended? Also the cambelt itself, what brand do you guys recommend?

I think most are metal now but its usually all the specalists supply .. iirc correctly skf supplied oem rollers and Gates oem belts.. can get a kit for under 200.00 with skf and gates belt pump around 70 and a full aux kit for around 100 too..

For near future reference, all parts has arrived now. SKF waterpump has metal impeller, made in italy. The Gates cambelt kit has rollers from INA. All dayco bits made in italy. Very pleased so far, all seems to be good quality.
