    LS6 oil Pump

    i have low oil pressure (20 at idle) and im looking for a new pump
    wheres a good place to find an Ls6 oil pump?
    does anyone have the part number?
    the car's in the shop so its better if i got a part number, that way i can give it to them and they can order it.
    also, whats the difference of replacing it with a regular LS1 pump like the one in it?
    thanks

    I did heads and cam and I wanted to replace the LS1 pump with a LS6 pump--they told me it is the same part # but I installed a new one anyway---I had 23 psi at idle when hot with the old one--the new one only had 21 psi !!! so basically no difference--They told me that 20 is fine at idle---I have a data logger and logged the pressure at WOT (6300)--- I have 66 psi so i'm not worried anymore

    the ls6 superceded the ls1... i just hope they didnt sell you an old ls1 that has been laying around for a few years...

    I know I was a little suspicious too--but what could i do--well at least it was new and it eased my mind a little
