I'm going to agree with Justin.

The honey badger pumps are garbage.

A stock replacement or t500 is better.

A Reman stock pump is more than up to the task to handle 160/30's.

That is absurdly delusional!
The T-500 is not reliable at all. Check out all of the forums. They don't lie. No reason to.

Have you run a T500? They are the only pump we carry for a reason.

Spoke to a customer just a few days ago who has gone through 3 HBJR pumps (leaks and failures). He was sick of swapping HPOP's so he called me and ordered a T500. He is well known on some of these 7.3L forums.

I can count on one hand the number of T500 pump issues I have dealt with in the past 4+ years.

I've heard of a few T500's having issues lately, But after thousands that's pretty good.

The HBJR was all hyped up and ended up being junk. Just like the original SRP pumps lol heck you might argue the SRP1.1's were junk too

Justin, what are they doing? Are they just putting a larger rotator group and valve plate in or are they cocking the swashplate a few degrees more?

Unless you are the one who has to pull your front brackets off to get the front oil rail plugs out, get the back ones out, pull injectors so you can flush out hunks of the brass slippers, out of your oil rail.

There is a reason Stealth went out of business. If the pumps were good, then that probably would not have been the case.

You would have to get in touch with Joey at Terminator to get the details of what he is doing to the pump. It really is nothing crazy, as the stock pump design is proven and works good. He just mods a couple things inside I believe. Does not change the swash plate angle as far as I know.

Most of the pumps that have a bad reputation tried doing too much to change from the stock design.
