Water pump install

I am assuming I will replace the pump-serpentine- and thermostat at the same time.

I swear I heard something about getting a different thermostat to make it hotter or cooler? Maybe mileage?

Do you need a new pump belt and stat? Get on Geno's garage and buy a quality water pump. The cheap ones tend to not last long. If the belt is good shape leave it. Same with the stat. If it's working it's working. As for the temp, hotter can increase the efficiency yes. I'm not 100% what temps are available for the 5.9 but I'd probably just go with a stock temp one.

skip the gates pump & get the cummins pump, otherwise you willl be swapping it again in a couple of years.

200*f stat from napa (stant, $15) gets 0.5~0.8 mpg better.

I tend to over-maintain my vehicle so when it was time for a new water pump, I also did a coolant flush, new thermostat and new belt. It was winter and I didn't have a warm place to work so I took it to my diesel mechanic. I kept the old belt as a spare. Less than year later, my tensioner started making noise so I got to spend a not so nice winter day in an open garage changing that too. I was advised to change out the idler at the same time so I bought the part and sure enough, it was shot too. My original water pump went out around 90-100k. If I had it to do over, I would have done all the work at the same time. When you do the work, It wouldn't hurt to spin all the other bearings that ride on the belt to make sure they're OK.
