if you trust him, go with his reccomendations. I work for an aftermarket mass marketer and wish I could get dealer parts for most repairs but we have to use our own products.

There are new waterpumps available on the aftermarket however most good technicians prefer OEM quality parts. The dealer parts cost a bit more but are better quality. If he insisted on OEM parts he probably knows what he's doing.
