Let me know in comments what you think and what order you would put them in.

Atomic Performance Products - XR6T High Performance Oil Pump
Oil Pumps and Components High performance Ford 6 cylinder DOHC engines need a high performance oil pump - and Atomic has engineered the answer. We produce high performance billet steel oil pump gears as well as complete race-prepped oil pumps for the Ford DOHC engines. Ford DOHC, 2J Toyota and various Nissan oil pumps are Gerotor design pumps which are driven directly off the snout of the crankshaft and subsequently are subjected to twisting moments that increase substantially with RPM. These torsional forces cause the oil pump drive gear to be thrust clockwise and anti clockwise, which eventually leads to the failure of the gear. The torsional moments are of a higher frequency and greater amplitude in manual gearbox equipped cars due to them being on and off the throttle more often during gear changes, downshifting etc. Ford DOHC 6 cylinder oil pumps fail for 2 reasons: The original equipment (OE) gears are made from powdered metal and lack the structural integrity to withstand the stresses created in high revving engines. Secondly, Gerotor pumps produce pressure and volume almost proportional to engine speed, so high revs equals higher volumes of oil. These larger volumes cannot be adequately managed in a standard oil pump and hydraulic oil pressure can split the pump body open. Atomic Engineers addressed both of these issues when designing an oil pump for performance Ford DOHC applications and subsequently our pumps are designed and tested to 7500 RPM and beyond. Our #306751 and #306751-RB oil pumps features precision cut billet steel gears, high flow pressure bypass circuitry, fully blueprinted and clearanced and also include a hard anodized billet end plate to provide thrust wear resistance.

XR6 Turbo Rebuild
After doing a compression test on the beast I noticed that it lost about 100psi in number 6 So I pulled the motor out and discovered that the oil ring had pushed thru... So it was time for a rebuild. Thanks my local mechanic we are going to do a rebuild total cost of the rebuild is about 10k.. I will be roaming the streets again min to late January.. Can't wait to see what horse power I can get hoping for 600rwhp+
