Oil and Oil Pump Question

Hey, all,
Does you guys oil pump get noisy after like 500 miles on new oil?
I did an oil change(with mobile 1 ep 5w30) 2 weeks ago and now my car already feels painful at high rpm and oil pump is very noisy especially cruising between 2k -3k rpm.

I can't beat it that hard: I do daily drive faster than 95% drivers out there, but I don't floor it every chance I get. However, my oil pump usually gets annoyingly loud very quickly and I usually have to change mine around every 1.5k - 2k cuz I just can't stand the oil pump noise.

My question is, when the oil pump gets loud, would you change it right away? or still stick with scheduled maintenance(3k every change) and will there be dmg?
What really makes the oil pump noisy? is it because of shearing? Are there any oil recommendation to "combat"/ resist this noise?
Or is this just a nature of the EVO? Maybe with any oil, the oil pump will whine after a few hundred miles?

Edit: I really don't wanna turn this into another which oil is the best thread. I just want first hand experience from you guys and which oil you guys used to combat this noise.

My question is how do you know it is your oil pump that is making noise? Like how are you hearing this in the car at cruise?

Here is a link that is very similar to mine, sound goes away after a oil change, but comes back after 500-800 miles after the new oil.
It is most noticeable between 2k -3k rpms

I suggest getting under the car and have someone else rev it up. I am not convinced that it is the oil pump, but it isn't my car though. I have heard plenty about the TC death whine and could it be that?

Thanks man.
I am kind of surprised that this noise is not well known.
I had 2 evo x and both of them have this sound when oil is old.
It also have this sound when car is completely stationary.
Also, let's say this is Something more than just engine oil.. Why would it go away after an oil change?

I agree man, it is strange and I can see why you are saying oil pump. I just haven't seen any other posts about noisy oil chains. I have had my car for almost 8yrs and have resealed the oil pan 4 times plus another friends. It is something new for me so I am interested in learning more myself.

Yep, it's well known. I had this noise since 500 miles on the car brand new. There was a lot of threads on it. It is oil pump and it does go away after oil change. So now that we got that out of the way...

I just learned to live with it. Louder exhaust may be? Unless someone can recommend oil that would reduce the noise.

My car has 60k miles on it since I first heard the noise and it never changed. Still same noise since day 1.

Lol, ya, it had been the same for me as well, since I got my current evo 2 years ago.
I could live with it.. But it just make the car sounds very un-healthy ,even if I know it is just the oil pump.

I was opening this thread to see if anyone found an oil that could keep the noise away for more than 1k miles.. But I guess everyone might have get used to it, lol.

I am somehow feeling like this is the case and everyone just out up with it. I heard some have replaced the pump multiple times and sound would still come back after very short period of time.

"just the oil pump" is like saying "just your heart"

Not trying to hijack but what are some signs that your oil pump is going out? Since it's common for them to make noise when they're healthy..
