Front pump dilemma

So, as some of you know, I have a spare 5R110W that I plan to build as my "strong" transmission now that I have a few power adders and want to get it out of the way. The reason for wanting to replace the front pump is I don't know the condition of the one in this spare transmission. With a little bit of research I have found a so called aftermarket solution from a company called Level 10. They offer a version of the 5R110W pump that is "modified to supply all the volume the transmission can use at pressures that insure solid clutch lock." They want $498. Level 10 PTS Super Pump

I went to my local dealership and got a price and part number for an OEM pump. My dealer quoted me $732 and showed me on the page there wasn't an overhaul kit for the pump...not sure I believe that. Anyways, I ran the part number on Tousley's page and came up with $482. How do some dealers get away with such a large markup?? That's insane!!!! Tousley OEM pump

My question is, has anyone heard of Level 10, good or bad? I mean at this rate it is a $17 difference between the pump (shipping excluded), but I'm curious about reviews, opinions or other possible options. Any input would be great.

As for the build if any of you are curious, it will consist of a PI torque converter, Elite Diesel HD clutch kit, billet input, billet low/reverse gear, upgraded solenoids and Amsoil's transmission fluid. Should be more than sufficient for what I need. Still up in the air if I want a Mag Hytec pan, Derale pan or just the stock '08 pan.

After talking with some folks, I've heard to stay as far away from Level 10 as possible.

That's pretty much what I heard with my other inquiry about the place.

Precision Industries converter and right now I'm teetering between Elite Diesel's HD kit (which they told me was their kit for guys who tow and what they recommended for my application) or Andy Warren's kit. They both use Raybestos clutches it's just the Elite kit crams 6 clutches in the direct and low/reverse pistons. I gotta call Elite to find out what their final clearance is for the kit before I pull the trigger on it but they also offer military discount too.
