    125k on a stock oil pump gives me peace of mind. Perhaps I'll just tune it instead. If its a 1000 bucks to install the pump then perhaps. But, it really seems complicated to do.
    My truck is barely a weekend truck. Probably will hit 65k in a few years if that.

    Avoid wheel hop. I was told this was a major contributing factor for failure by two reputable tuners.

    Good point! Only did that a few times by accident!

    curious, do you know if the pump fails, i assume the engine blows or is damaged beyond repair?

    I will always try to avoid the recline
    I just like the scream of the exhaust

    Definitely avoid the rev limiter. Shift points are one thing, bouncing off the rev limiter isn’t good.

    if the oil pump fails and somehow you would immediately be able to shut the engine off (which I believe the oil pressure sensor on these trucks senses and will shut off the engine when it dips to a certain low pressure), it’s not necessarily a death sentence for the engine. If it blows apart and the metallic fragments are churning in the crank case, not great. It would need further inspection.

    I have stock roush truck with 155k, stock gears still and I beat on it I just don’t do any launches from a dig. Might consider once I do the 700 jdm Kit

    makes me feel way better man!
    I'd like to tune it for sure, but can't decide on which company. the 700 kit is no joke. Definite wheel hop on that man!

    Just want to post a sign on the window for Gen 2 owners...not interested in racing, thx
    worse then the subbys when I had the mustang. Now with the alfa QV, get a-hole bmw drivers

    the above statement has no relevance
