    It depends on what you want to do with the car. If you're daily driving it as well as autocross or track racing with high revs, it's probably better to cut the shafts or remove the gear. The reasoning behind this is that when the engine is oil starved the shafts are usually first to go which can wreak havoc on the rest of the engine. It doesn't matter if you have a new or old pump, it just depends on what you plan on doing with the car.

    You wouldn't. You did the right thing by buying a brand new OEM pump. You run into problems when you build your motor and throw in your tired old pump or throw in a pump that isn't meant for the car. You'll have no issues with that new OEM pump, at least not for a very long time.

    If I ever build the block on my car I'll just do drop in rods and a brand new OEM oil pump. It will suck to chew down 1600 bucks for the new OEM pump but I feel it's the right move.

    Itís good to finally hear some support !

    I was just gonna do rods but I was one of the lucky ones that got the great pistons rings installed form factory ! So I decided to go ahead and do it all

    My car has really even compression, well over 200 psi so the block appears to be pretty healthy. Drop in rods, new rings, a light hone and a new oil pump should be more than enough.

    If you do too much without good reason, it seems people run into problems. Especially since the rods and the oil pump really seem to be the limiting factors so I'm only going to focus on them.

    It will be a while before I even consider engine work though. I've got some running issues to sort out with my K04 before I even go there.

    Very true !
    I think mine was like 140 across all 4 last time I got it done and a leak down test showed the rings where on there way out

    Will still be awhile before the work starts to happen !
    Still need to go to strip on the stock block and see what I can do
