Time to get an aluminum water pump and housing for a 440. Are the mopar performance pieces good quality or do I need to be looking at another brand? Thanks.

I've got a number of them , never an issue .

Everyones favorite stroker kit supplier has them cheaper , there WAS a thread about there quality here last week if you order one make sure you have a good rat tail file handy .

I paid more for my housing thats MP than 440 Soyrce has the whole thing.Mines is probally 15 years old.My buddy has sources and no problems.Some have said the holes for the stat housing arent quiet right and the stat housing needs to be opened a bit.His fit fine and has been on for 2 years.Rocky

I bought one from 440source last week. I paid $109.00 for the housing AND aluminum water pump. No fitment issues and the thermostat housing holes were fine. I was actually impressed with the quality.
