In the early 2000′s the Modular Ford aftermarket industry was plagued with inferior oil pump assemblies, many were made out of inferior metals and ill manufactured. Triangle Speed Shop saw the need of a quality set of gears to be produced, so with their industry background that is what they set forth to accomplish. With over 500 sets sold without a single known failure, Triangle Speed Shop has set the standard for oil pump gear assemblies. There is no comparison; These billet oil pump gears are second to none. We personally use them in any build that requires an upgrade to the stock assembly. Sure there may be "cheaper" alternatives, but why risk it for such a crucial part of the engine. We all know what happens when you go with "cheaper" over quality.
