I have a hi-volume pump in my EF (well the box says high-volume anyway). Cost the same as a standard replacement and got it from the local auto shop (Sprints). Ive seen a lot of people list high volume pumps in engine specs but to be honest I have no idea what is needed to qualify a pump as high-volume (i suspect nothing).

Sorry, suppose im not helping much :?

I belive JP make the better ones... Although I'm told that the relief spring in them is a little softer than it probably should be. But I was running one of the pumps in my for a few years Ghia pre-accident, and it was OK.

As for high volume, I'm told that the gears in them are a tad larger and can pump a little more oil than compared to the stock pumps. JP's most basic pump is a slightly higher volume than the stock pump.

But if your interested JW, you can actually get rebuild kits for the stock pumps. They are about $35 from Fraud, and come with new gears, relief spring and gaskets.

the standard pump at the moment is working fine, just that with the turbo the oil line means theres more oil requirements, so i thought a higher volume pump might be worth lookin into.
especially after why my engines being cahnged :P
