I bought a long block through Jesse with the new head, and he did the install. I think he just put in a Asain(hope spelling is right) oil pump. The engine has always run really good, just some goofy things popped up, but seems to be working perfectly now. I think you will enjoy it.

Joe Calleja at CTS is big on the OEM valve chain tensioner and guide for 22REs versus aftermarket kits, but (speaking for him from our conversations) the aftermarket pumps themselves aren't much different.

Who is installing your engine?

My friend Bill at Evergreen automotive is installing my engine. I used to work for him and he has always helped me out when I was in a crunch with my vehicles. I trust him to do the work with my life. I was going to go through Jesse but I'm getting the labor done a little bit cheaper and he doesn't mind doing the 5 speed swap at the same time for the same cost.
