Get an oem LS6 oil pump and make absolute sure to get the updated o ring.


I assume you aren't aware that he already has one. The 4.8L, 5.3L, 5.7L, and 6.0L use the same pump. There is no difference. If you go to a dealer and give them a vin for an LS6 powered Corvette and a vin for an SS truck or 4.8L truck for that matter they are the same part number. The LS6 thing is a marketing tool when actually they are the same part including part number. If you want to buy a pump buy a Melling 10295 or 10296. Anything else is pretty much a stock replacement of what the truck already came with.
