Oil pump gears and supercharger question

Hi all, I'm saving my pennies for a Paxton/Votech setup on my 2012 GT.
So I've been reading up on oil pump gears and failures. My question is I want around 550-600 whp from my set up. Is my oil pump gear a ticking time bomb or safe at that HP.
If it is I'll have the forged one put in.
I don't want to spend $1000 on install if I don't need it. I know I know $1000 is cheaper than a new bottom end. But that money I could throw at other parts.

At 550-600 if you are not spinning it well above 7200 rpms, you will be OK. If you track the car a lot, different story.

Oil pump gears are more prone to break from higher rpm, not more power. That's why anyone that wants to run the Cobra Jet Intake and spin their motor to 7900-8000 rpm should look into them.
