I just used my 3.0 pump, it's a three rib so it's a pretty good pump.
Some think it contains magic smoke, to me it's a pretty simple pump. I tore it down, made sure it didn't have any FOD, blueprinted it as it had .012" endplay so it now has about .0015-.002" endplay both sides. Then I cleaned up some flashing for better flow, made sure the pick up tube is in good.
The last thing I did was to DFL coat the inside of the pump body, I do this in house as I'm a engine builder.
Then back together, some locktite on the studs, packed it with assembly lube for fast priming and installed it. I have perfect oil pressure.

Not putting miles on your car is like not having sex with your girlfriend, so she'll be more desirable to her next boyfriend.
