So, for those that have replied to my boost adjustment post will now know I have a more urgent issue 

water pump

i have a dribble from the tell tale hole underneath

question is where to get a replacement.

prices vary massively.. blue bag stuff seems like a no no unless I fancy doing it again in a month

anyone got any recommendations??

I allways replaced pump with blue bag stuff, when I changed the timing belt. Never had a problem.

Belt, idler, water pump ...

I believe the bearing in the pump is constructed for the live of a timing belt, because on other cars the pump is changed with the belt. They sure use identical bearings.

Yup I have a proflow pump, it's now lasted longer than the one previous to that from Turners.

If I had the money I'd buy genuine but I haven't so I don't.

But don't last that long Dave ☹


But in my book, it's a service Item - changed every 40k or four years, with the belt.
