I have available now water pump blanking plates for those who wish to go to an electric water pump for superior temperature/water flow control. Machined by myself to be a direct bolt in replacement for your water pump using your existing "o"ring.
Requires a shorter timing belt (qtb302) Audi part, and a small mod to one of the idler pulleys to make it a tensioner.
Centre is tapped to take a water temp sensor used by the ewp.
Price for forum members $38
