Oil pump and cams?

After a search with no success.
I am considering replacing the pump on my 2012 as preventive measures for future plans. From what I have found you are pretty deep into the motor on our cars at this point.
My question is just how much more labor would go into doing the cams at the same time?

Doing cams will set you back in the neighborhood of $3000 parts and labor. There is no need to replace the oil pump.

I was thinking of replacing it with one of MMRs billet hurricane pumps so the stock one does not cause me to spend more $ later.
My intentions are to hopefully go faster than my race car that runs 10.60s n/a with my street car that will not be n/a eventually.

That's not necessary at all. You can shoot right past 10.60 by just slapping a blower and some slicks on it. The oil pump is known to fail at really high rpms. A lot of guys buying the boss intake manifold and running the car at 7500roms all the time are the ones having issues with this. There are coyotes with stock long blocks that run high 9s @140+ that have stock heads, cams, and oil pump.

I would say since you have to pull the front timing cover off, the timing chains, the oil pump is right there and easy to get to so you could change them if you have the extra cash at the time.
