Should I change oil and water pumps

Changing engine (spun bearing) 2.7l 2001 dodge intrepid. Will be installing a 2.7l with 91k would it be a good idea to install new oil and water pumps before installing it seems to make sense to do it easy to access. But I also see what a pain it would be to do not to mention time consuming. I am new to this engine and not aware of how durable these parts are.if someone could chime in and give me some guidance It would be appreciated.

I would recommend a 3.2 or a 3.5 over sticking another 2.7 in there.

Waterpump definitely, maybe also add a tensioner stop block. I think the 01s had the higher flow oil pump. I could be wrong, but I think you should be ok with the one it has.

Agreed. And, yes, the higher flow oil pump happened sometime during the '99 production.

I think I misread the original post, if the "new" engine is coming out of a 2000 or 01 model, then it should be ok to reuse the original oil pump. If you're new engine is a 98 or 99, then you'll want to replace it.

Thank you for the input I will change water pump and, because I'm that far into it I might as well change the oil pump. Should I go with factory replacement parts or parts from napa,auto zone, pep boys etc. I'm trying to get up to speed on this motor as quickly as possible and I only want to do this one time
