Any opinion on the waterpump quality different between OEM and ProFlow? I have replaced with OEM twice and they seems to be good around 80k and 150k miles.

I’m having the same debate, mine was done at 79k and now I’m wondering how long it’ll last. I’m at 147k right now.

OEM for mine. I also did an OEM radiator at 98k since it had a super slight leak. The leak was evident because of traces left from the coolant. I believe the orangish residue from a leak is purposeful.

I don't know about the quality these days or must be bad luck. But this was a OEM crossover heater pipe I got at a Land Rover dealership in LA recently. It seems to have crack/bad seams.

My pipe looked suspect so I brought it back to the service department and pointed it out. They had a whole large box full of them (no surprise) and said they all have the same quality problem like that. I installed it regardless because to me the priority part isn't really that exterior seam that could probably be mold marks. The priority is the seal between the two pieces coming together from top down and bottom up as well as the width across the mating surfaces.

Actually, I’ve changed my mind. This makes me angry. I’d say mail a package with bills and pics and send it to LR HQ in US and UK and ask “*** is this?”
