    sounds like yourmods are too much for that gasket. or its leaking from somewhere else
    and if it is the same gasket needing replacement it could also be possible yourepinching the gasket or not seating it right when installing

    Suspect a burr causing the seal problem and a faulty pick up tube or obstruction if pressure is low with a known good pump installed correctly.

    Nevermind I googled it. An its not a sharp cut its like its ripped but not a straight tear also the tear is only 2 to 3 inches long and not straight around.

    That's odd. Are you oiling the seal before installing it? I can't imagine what would be causing the damage.

    I had read somewhere that a 12mm oil pump might be TOO large...but that was on a 2.5L block. Not sure if it would cause an issue here. Someone with more engine knowledge should chime in.
