Well my time has come, the stock oil pump has failed on start-up leaving a car show, fairly certain I heard it snap too as car shut off immediately after starting, its NEVER done that, then upon a restart is when I noticed the loss of pressure verified by 2 gauges, it was shut off after about 7 seconds, no rattling, hoping the crank is ok. Now comes the task of figuring out what parts I want, mainly oil pump/gears, the spline drive is out due to overall cost of them plus having them installed but spool import billet gears may be the direction I go as I cannot find anyone having a failure with them. Will post pics of damage once engine is out next month. Just so everyone knows I had my limiter at 8200, shifting at 8k so was on borrowed time doing that, I just recently upped it from 7500 which has been fine for the last 3 years. Had I kept it at 7500 I'm confident this would not have happened. I do have a Fluidampr which I believed prolonged the life of the gears.
