If your not taking it regularly over 7500 rpm then I wouldn't worry about going to dry sump. It's not often that we break the oil pump gears, in fact I can't even remember the last time this even happened to someone. All I know is our tuners and high hp people back in the day did have them break and find out that they are the weak link but those were ultra hp builds and super high rpm. That's why we have aftermarket oil pump gears in the first place lol
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
