    Default oil pump

    i've read many people only recommend OEM oil pumps. that said, i bought one that wasn't (or at least it wasn't advertised as such) and its been ok in the 2000 miles i've done since the rebuild. it cost more than 60 bucks though.

    try Soldave on here for an original mitsi oil pump. Mayhem's just bought one from him. not sure what they sell for in Japan, about 160 iirc (plus postage obviously)

    I know the attraction of cheap parts is strong but if your 60 dollar oil pump fails and wrecks a 3k engine, i know i'd be kicking myself over not spending another 100 notes on an genuine pump.

    you could always see if there's a Blueprint copy available from your local parts shop
    ......same 4g63 was also fitted to Hyundai Sonata circa 1993-5
    n.b. the pump isn't turbo specific

    I never buy oem parts from Mitsubishi direct
    ....none of the pattern parts I've fitted/had fitted have ever failed

    would there be a difference between a NA engine oil pump and a turbo engine oil pump

    ^the 4g63 na and turbo oil pumps are the same.

    if your front case is still good just buy the oil pump gears and pump cover. get the 1990 dsm gears they are straight cut gears and a 7bolt pump cover if you want to go oem.

    I run aftermarket ones. I have never had one go out on me at all on any of the engines I have built for my self or any one else that has me build them.

    i was being sarcastic mate , i am a fluid power engineer by trade so i know a little about fluid dynamics

    interesting about the straight cut point , all evo pumps i have stripped are straight cut are you saying that later dsm 7 bolts are not straight cut
