1987 944 Turbo Oil pump longevity


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 Turbo; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 72,000;

I am replacing the clutch and a main oil seal in my 1989 944 Turbo, so my mechanic suggested replacing an oil pump and timing belts as well. I wonder if the oil pump change is really necessary, given significant additional cost over already a handsome bill and good oil pressure readings on the gauge. Do these pumps tend to last on 1989 Turbos or is it a weak link and replacing it at 72k is a good idea?
