Would the new design of the two piece pump in the Mokai 2.0 be easier to test future 3-D impellers. Maybe even 3-D print a 2 piece pump too?

Not that I can think of, from what I've seen the impeller etc. is assembled the same way and being able to split the pump makes no difference other than adding another step that is unnecessary. All the impellers I've tried led me to the conclusion there is no better profile within the stock wear ring size and pump intake volume size. It was fun exploring different designs, but it ultimately led to a dead end.

Guess my thought was whether it might be easier to duplicate the original now that it's split in two. Not looking for performance improvements but a replacement in case something would happen to my pump.  (Just pondering the $1800 question...Lol)

The pump being two pieces now just makes assembly a little easier, and repair much easier later when rebuild or fixing broken cone screws is necessary. Also gives the ability to replace that tail section should someone hit a rock, that's the area that would be damaged. So instead of protecting the pump, they ensured a pump guard wouldn't be possible and they just created a way to generate a sale for replacement parts.
