Oil Pump gears?

Coyote oil pump gears? I am getting ready to pull the trigger on adding forced induction. It has been suggested to me to replace the oil pump gears at the same time. My 2011 GT has 54k on it now. I can't find a lot of info on this. The gears themselves don't seem terribly expensive but it looks like a whole lot of labor to change them out with the motor in the car. I do not plan on racing this car, just something fun for the weekends. Thank you for your input.

RPM's are the No.1 killer of oil pump gears, not power. Until the power really gets up there that is. Which form of F/I?

I am going with the new Whipple 2.9 front feed, I am guessing around 9-10lbs of boost . My goal is some where north of 600 hp to the rear wheels. Most of my weekend fun driving though will be kept under 4000 RPMS. With an occasional push to 7000k if a good opportunity presents it self.

I wish I had done OPGs before I installed my vortech.

It would have been easy just to get it done while everything was apart.

If it's in the budget I would do it. The front feed Whipple puts a lot of stress on the OPG.

You should be fine although nothing is a guarantee.


This is also a good question you guys could ask your tuner about provided they're not in the business to sell parts. But they would have more experience than I ever will.

I believe Livernois Motorsports sells a whole oil pump containing the billet gears. It eliminates splitting the pump just a direct replacement. I believe they are $499. A worthwhile investment for peace of mind.

There is a really good thread on another forum that has a step by step oil pump gears install on a coyote motor. It even breaks down the torquing process when reinstalling everything. Definitely very time intensive but if you do the work yourself you will save a lot in labor. Parts themselves aren't too bad. And its a cheap insurance honestly. You don't want to ever loose your gears in the middle of a pull or something. god forbid something more than the gears go. Just my two cents!
