Has anyone else ran one of these new race pumps??

I put one on a motor and when I primed it with a half inch drill before its initial fire up. It felt like no other pump Ive primed. It wasnt smooth spinning at all like you would expect from a better pump??

the differance might be that this pump has a cover that machined so the shafts of the gears go INTO the cover. so the gears are supported on both sides. i have one and it runs great so far. nice constant oil pressure. i've got about 65-70psi warm at race rpm (5-7k)
