The Magnusson Moss act states that your changes must be shown to cause the failure. The WP is a known failure point, and the dealer has them in stock for this reason. I'd bring it in and expect nothing but full warranty coverage.

I forget what the caveat to that act is but no the dealership doesn't have to warranty modded engines. (I looked into this a act a few months ago) also water pump failure is common. I'm having mine replaced just to have it replaced.
