This is fantastic insight for me. I appreciate the heads-up!

Oil pump issues are mostly on the LS3. The L99 comes with a high volume pump. I changed mine anyway to a high pressure pump. It's only like $150

I will look more into this and I hope that maybe someone in this forum can maybe give into some insight. As for the living within my budget, I find that we all figure it out the hard way. I learned mine the really hard way with my LT1 car. Not only was it expensive, but it was always a large undertaking to do almost anything. Really enjoying the ease of use in my 5th gen now.
The shop where I take my car charges a couple hundred bucks more for comparable jobs on the LT engines. Not sure how much more labor intensive they are over an LS3, but good to have a new forum member.

I probably will as well when I have the timing chain swapped for the Katech. I'm at 90k miles so might as well.
