The Stewart-vs-OEM water pump debate will go on forever. Some people here perceive it to be more durable simply because the impeller is metal and the pump looks/feels prettier. Unfortunately there is no real statistical data on this forum to justify the $100 price difference. It's really a matter of personal preference. Stick with OEM and change it at regular intervals.
I'll disagree with that ... I installed a Stewart water pump, not because it looks prettier (really?), rather, it comes with a lifetime warranty. I'm ok to pay a little more with a reasonable assurance it's not going to fail. And if it does, I'm not out paying for another pump.
