The Achilles heel of the Ford Modular engine platform is undoubtedly the stock oil pump gear set. Made of powdered metal, harmonics from superchargers and unintended engine knock will shatter the stock pieces. This has caused countless engine failures. The remedy? We replace the stock gears with billet pieces from Triangle Speed Shop. These TSS gears are manufactured to exact tolerances and should be included in any build. A great time to upgrade the gears is during a cam swap, when the front cover has already been removed.
