Hey guys!

So if you have been following my thread in the forced induction section you already know I want to build a VERY reliable, mildy turboed 2ZZ. I am going to replace the oil pump gears and probably new valves and seats. I have been pondering options for the oil pump gears...many are VERY expensive. I think the cheapest I found is $250 for a performance, quality brand.

This thread is a general inquiry into what my oil pump gear options are.

I am tossing around the idea of machining my own - I have a mill and lathe that would be capable of this type of work.

If I did make my own - what material would you suggest?

Any feedback on these thoughts is appreciated!

Why go throught all that hassle, just buy new gears from the usual suspects. They're not that expensive afterall. Just my 02c.
