The water pump is the same part number for both turbo and non-turbo engine, but the quality certainly does vary between the different after-market manufacturers. Some others might be able to give some advice on which particular brand(s) are good and which are bad.

if it's an original on the scrapyard car(or new quality type) they are cast impelars on the unit, but if it's an el cheapo model they are pressed steel, they obviously both do the job, but the cast ones last a lot longer
