Poll: Best HPFP

Hey guys. So I had unfortunate cam follower damage after going HPFP. Follower disintegrated casing the usual heavy damage that the follower does. The first follower showed unusual Wear on the outside of the follower and not the center as usually shown. The follower was replaced and unfortunately lasted 1500km before blowing its head off! !

Obviously stage2+ seems to be a bit more powerful than normal Stage 2 so I'm keen to do the HPFP Again. I had Autotech insert into my 15K mile pump fail. And I don't want it to happen Again. What HPFP Would you guys recommend, and what's the best maintenance to make sure the follower lasts. I'm not talking about just the religious checking of it, but what oil I use, and what should I look out for etc

Thanks guys

I've done 5 cam follower swaps and each time shows minimal wear. I have the APR pump and use liquimoly every 5k miles. I also use assembly lube on the new followers when I install the new one.
