I was under the impression that the Aisin water pump was the oem for EJ22, but I have also heard paraut was used by Subaru.I found these two on Amazon, and I was wondering which one I Should buy? There also a big price difference, and I'm not really sure why.

The aisin one has the fuji stamp on it, s that would make me assume it is a rebuild, Perhaps the paraut one is new aftermarket.

I just did a Waterpump and Timing Belt on my EJ22 Legacy and the pump that was ON the car was a Parut. I had purchased the AISIN as a replacemet based on recommendations I found on here and the fact it was made in Japan.  When I pulled the Parut I noticed that the impeller on the pump was completely different than the Aisin.  The Aisin impeller was a stamped piece while the Parut was a cast piece of completely different design (what you see in the picture), but the Aisin shipped with a completely different design.  That's not to say the Aisin is any better or worse, but it's obvious that the newest design is a cheaper one.  My confidence was also broken when my co-worker's Toyota 4runner suffered catastrophic bearing failure in his water pump which was an Aisin branded unit from Napa after just under 40K miles.

 

This is what's on the Aisin now

I have rarely heard of a water pump failure on any Roo around.
Especially EJ22.
If you are into your car at all you will notice warning signs before any type of failure.
I have installed both, had good luck with both.
cheers
