I really lucked out in that a member here accidentally bought the non-turbo pump for his turbo car and sold me the brand new pump for $250 (including shipping!). I bought the t-stat brand new for $85 shipped. Coolant was $24 after tax, bought at a local indie shop here in the East Bay.

I think the value of my original comment was that you can pay someone ~$300 to do all this work. The rest was just bragging that I got such a good deal

Paying someone else to do it for you is a great idea too, esp if they'll take $300.
