    The noise level of the sts oil pump is the nature of the beast. Every STS oil pump I have installed and on my own vehicle is noisy. Now if it gets to the point where you can hear it plain as day while driving there might be a problem. If you personally don't like the noise there may be a slightly quieter pump on the market but I'm not sure.

    It might be possible but be aware that it may cause the oil pump to collect and retain heat instead of releasing it which coul possibly cause premature failure.
