I won't answer that question (quite a few engine changes in 2000), but will tell you that there's a revised water pump housing and also a revised seal ring available for your year - done to remedy persistent housing leaks. www.rockauto.com or rippypartsmaster

yeah definitely get the new housing with the new gaskets (both the 'teardrop' against the block and the thermostat gasket/seal)

this design fits all transverse mounted northstar engines from the 1993 allante to the 2011 dts
