you dont think there is a justifiable quality difference between OEM and brands like URO, HEPU, REFAK, GEBA, ect?

i never mind paying more for OEM on a permanently moving part like a water pump if it is justified.

A water pump on an ABA is easy enough to do. I've yet to have a quality non Autozone pump fail between timing belt jobs. I'm sure others will chime in to prove me wrong, but that's been my experience.

I'd rather buy local than trust mail order. I've been disappointed every time I didnt give myself 2 weeks to allow for the fine print on shipping policies.

FPS can normally get stuff the next day.
