That engine has a TON of miles and I've never even pulled the head - Stuttgart all the way. Since this pic I've added a Dieselmeken pump and a big ol' turbo and a water-to-air intercooler.

I'm thinking the factory lift pump should be fine as long as there are no air leaks in the system. Mine is supporting 220+ HP with zero issues.
