Melling Stock Replacement Oil Pump for 1999-2015 GM LS Gen III/IV 4.8/5.3/5.7/6.0/6.2L, High Volume, Standard Pressure
Items You Need
The Melling M295HV pump is a high-pressure, standard-volume pump that offers improved resistance against cavitation at higher RPMs. The cast aluminum housing is CNC-machined and hard coat anodized. The cast iron cover is CNC-machined and phosphate coated. The relief valve features a screw-in valve plug. The factory LS oil pump suffers from cavitation above 6,200 RPM, which results in a drop in oil flow of nearly 1 GPM by 7,000 RPM. This cavitation can also aerate the oil, which causes drops in oil pressure and can result in oil starvation. This is why we do not recommend shifting any higher than 6,200 RPM with a stock engine. Engines that run at RPMs above 6,200 should use an upgraded Melling pump to prevent these issues.

I'm upgrading to this pump in a 00 suburban ls 5.3l lm7. Which oil filter should I use with this pump? I have also installed the sac city corvette oil system upgrade. Will the stock filter be ok with more volume into the filter?
