Very likely your oil pump is going out, considering its a 98. Grab you a ported ls6 oil pump and ride.. because 20 is DEFINIETELy not enough to sustain that engine for many miles. Believe me on that. throw a cam in there while you have here torn apart.

I changed the oil in it and now it has about 30 at idle and about 50 2000 rpm I wased lukas oil treatment and Valvolane VR1 racing oil I think it might have been the oil filter. How hard is it to put a oil pump in it I am going to change it just to be safe can not afford a new motor.

Go there.. an article on a cam and valvespring swap. Follow it down to where you get to the oil pump... you will need to drop the pan and a few other things. Moderately difficult install.
