Hey all,
Ended up completely tearing down my 2.2T Engine. Was hoping I can get some insight on what oil pump to get? Should I just get the stock replacement melling oil pump?

My advice is tear down your old pump and inspect. If it is in good shape, clean thoroughly and reuse it. They don't wear out like many other engines. Might not be a bad idea to buy a new pickup, they are sometimes difficult to clean and they are inexpensive.
I personally prefer the aluminum case OEM pumps to the Melling cast iron pumps. If you do happen to find some NOS Mopar pumps and buy one, tear that one down and inspect carefully. I've bought a half dozen or so over the years and they had rust, died up assembly oil, casting flash inside pump, and some didn't turn very smooth until they were gone through.
I would also port match the block to the oil pump. That is worth a few free horsepower. You will find quite a bad mismatch there.
I appreciate that. Going to check my oil pump and see how it is
