Re: import car parts.co.uk

Id ask if they are genuine, I had some gaskets from them and they were very poor quality but they claim they were genuine, have you asked at API about a oil pump?
They do a little rework to the pressure relief valve way so its not rough and less chance of it sticking and causing a drop in pressure.

Thanks Bob, I ll check API and also RCMS. These guys just seemed very comptetively priced - maybe a reason for that and worth paying the extra

Yeah you tend to pay a lot more for the same thing from RCM, but its in a fancy black box imo
