I'm in the process of changing the water pump on my '04 CTT and am wondering if I will be able to confirm that the prior owner updated to the metal coolant pipes once it is out?  If I was to scope the opening created with the water pump removal, should I see anything that can help me determine if I have the old plastic pipes or the updated metal pipes? 
Appreciate the support of the forum!

I believe you will take away the intake manifold to get good access to your water pump.  When this part is out of the way you will see the tubes.

Thank you for the reply however I am trying to save myself that labor.  I am already doing the water pump and hoping to be able to make my determination without having to continue on to removing the manifold.

If you have a scope then you should be able to view it without even taking off the water pump. I remember changing the pipes and I saw a gap in between the intake manifold and valve cover on the drivers side towards the front where I could have snaked my scope in. I'll go back to it tonight and verify but I'm pretty sure there is a gap.
