Will call tomorrow to find out if it's useable on the normal Ls platform. Kurt Urban did say spinning the rotor less would help with windage if I'm not mistaken. Great for higher Rpm.

Mellings or Lemmings?

BTW- less volume- will still be good with 0-30w oil?

I’m poundering- stock or. More volume with thin oil, thin rings and 8500 rpm.

Higher Rpm doesn't necessarily mean you need a high volume oil pump. Typical less would be better on a Ls slower gear ratio = less windage @ higher Rpm or less volume. High pressure standard volume is great yet with less volume would be better. About the oil I'd call Melling.

That would necessitate a rewrite of the heading of this thread. "New Mellings LS.." can't just become Melling's new LS...without some sort of editing. Lol

It has less volume but, it also LEAKS a lot less; not as much wasted volume.

Can be used with standard Ls blocks..... Just called it in, stated production starts some time in the wk or so.

BTW these are cheap was told about them about 3wks ago from a friend @ Comp cams.
