    At least spend an extra $40 and get a LS2 chain.

    Since you really need to swap chains while your in there, you might aswell swap pumps too since its kinda a PITA to remove the pickup tube bolt and I wouldnt want to have to do it a second time.

    I think 99% of it is the fact that the car is torn down that far it only makes sense to go ahead and replace the pump. People have done it without replacing it but why risk a $4k motor over a $100 pump especially when you're 3" away from it when you're pulling the cam? It just makes sense to do it then.
