    Oil Pump Cavitation

    Has anyone experenced a problem with the LS6 oil pump cavitating when running above 8000 RPM. I have a drag race only combination with a solid roller cam and would like to run up to 9000 RPM. I am getting ready to dyno the engine and am looking for any information I can find before I destroy any parts.
