Question k24a2/a3 Oil Pump Maximum safe rpm

Hello,
What is the safe rpm limit of the oil pump of the k24a2 / a3 standard engine?
Engine oil cavitation starts at several rpm.
Can it safely rotate at 8000 rpm or should it remain at a lower rpm.
The maximum speed I think is 8000 rpm. Does that support it?
Do I have problems if I use 8000 rpm as a limit?

I did some research. Up to 8000 rpm, I've come across user reviews.
I would like to inform you.

I heard 7200 but I up my stock k20a3 at 7400 redline. I wouldn’t go to 8000k. Is there anything done to the engine? K20a2 oil pumps are easy to put in. I got my from hpt for a k24. https://www.hptautosport.com/product...UaAsIzEALw_wcB

I do not want to prefer because of vibration.
Vibration has increased after the pump has changed in the ekk swap tool.

What? The vibration is not worse when you change to the k20a2 oil pump. If you want to see more rpms over 7400 you will have to change the oil pump. You will see 8000 rpm with the k20a2 oil pump safely
