Oil pump and damper @ 300rwhp?
Getting ready to finish up this deployment and start my build in the next month or so. I've already got most of the build parts waiting for me at home. The questions that I am still trying to answer are:
Should I consider the boundary billet oil pump gears, or just replace it with a new OEM piece?
Should I consider adding a Super Damper?
Price is my only real deterrent to either of these, but I put a high value on doing it right the first time; so I want this to be done right, but I'd prefer not to throw money to the gutter. Here's the information you'll be looking for to help me out:
Currently on the car:
FMII Hydra kit (gt2560 w/550s)
FM 3" Turbo-back exhaust
FM Stage 2 clutch
At home, waiting to go on the car:
Mazda Motorsports new 3.636 R&P
Supertech 9.0:1 pistons
All new ARP hardware
190lph HP fuel pump
Hydramist W/I kit
Other misc stuff, incl FCM Setup, coolant reroute, etc.
My end goal has always been 300rwhp, though I'm not going to be upset if it puts out quite a bit more. I suspect to increase power much more, I'll need bigger injectors and a bigger snail.
Car is my daily driver when it's running, likely will never see a drag strip, with potential for a lapping day or two in the future. Mostly autocross and enjoying driving.
