If you never intend to use an air injection pump again, you can simply drill the end of your cam, install 2 bolts, and bolt the oil pump directly to the cam carrier.

That way, you wouldn't need a spacer, and the only seals would be the paper gasket on the cam carrier, and the oil seal in the scavenge pump. Eliminating the seal on the spacer, which is really only needed to drive the air injection pump...
Sorry for my denseness here but could you expand a bit.

I am removing my smog stuff on my 964t and plan to add in some sc cams at some point. I'd like to know exactly what to keep my eye out for.

Thanks.
