If I am replacing the oil pump gears with a set of billet gears is there any reason/value in replacing the pump unit with a new one? In other words, if the gears are replaced, what are the other potential points of failure on the pump that I should be concerned with?
Just looking to justify the $240 on a new pump if I'm going to tear it apart and replace the gears right out of the box.
