    Change it out or your gunna toast a bearing ! I don't think they are any differences in the year as far as efficiency goes.

    how low is low first off? You didn't swap the oil pump with the cam swap I take it? I wouldn't not play around with oil pressure. Get a ported LS6 pump, they're ~$100 and use a new o-ring when you replace it. Hopefully you don't already have a bearing issue.
    Another thing I just thought of is the oil sender on the back of the block is known to go bad also so verify your actual oil pressure before tearing into the motor.
