Maintenance and oil pump question

So I'm getting ready to take my motor out to do the clutch and flywheel along with TOB and when I do I'm going to replace the rear main seal the whole oil pan and gasket along with maximum motor sports clutch cable kit. Was wondering if there was anything in the Trans that should be change while I'm there?

And also I have a 306 H/C/I car that's getting a vortech and some guys say a high flow oil pump is a must but a lot of people say unless your revving to 8k or higher you don't need one and that it can actually starve your bearings running a high flow when you don't need one

You want a high performance STANDARD volume pump. Get an arp oil pump shaft too. For the trans... Good clutch (an exedy mach 400 is a good one), new flywheel, oem tob and pilot (oem not frpp), you are getting the right cable and also I'd do the mm quadrant and a good firewall adjuster if you haven't already.

Also realize that a T5 trans is going to be dicey behind a vortech. It may last awhile or it may eat 3rd gear after a few passes. At some point you will probably want to look at an Astro unit.

Summit is where I got mine. I'd also recommend you steer clear of the Tko unless you want to feel like you are shifting a truck... And get locked out at high rpm... I will never own another one, never. The Astro is super strong and since it is technically a t5 it will still shift silky smooth.

It's been years. It was the high performance standard volume one by melling. I remember it was like $45 back in 2007 lol.

Scotty has steered you in the right direction. No need for a high flow pump. I personally open the pumps and clean them up to make sure there are no shavings, sharp edges or burrs. Kinda like a mini blueprinting process. Guys also like to pack them with petroleum jelly for the beginning priming process. I have used just clean dino oil.


Also great advice on the arp shaft.


Also if you plan on swapping to a TKO 600, you will have to do some swapping later on with a new clutch due to the spine count.

He's going to need a 26 spline clutch for the TKO or an A5 regardless. I still don't see any point to the TKO when the A5 is just as strong, weighs almost half and shifts way better.

As far as the pump, I didn't de-burr but that sounds like a good idea. For priming... I just bought a priming shaft and threw it on a bigass drill and ran the pump till I got pressure on the mechanical oil gauge I had. That's all you need to do really. I do that literally as the very last thing before installing the dizzy and doing the initial start on a green motor.

I agree as I have said before that my TKO (and I rebuilt it with all the "new" carbon fiber this and brass that) doesn't shift as well as my boys A5 behind his 363 turbo coupe.


Yeah cleaning out the guts of the pump is simple, easy and quick.


Also when priming make sure it is a good drill as I burnt out a little 3/8 one time.

Lol yeah I got a $20 black and decker drill hot to the point it started smoking. Went and raided my father's shed and found some old circa 1980s huge sucker and it worked like a boss. And air drill would be ideal honestly.
