why do you want that much press.?i have the melling chevy M99HVS,hi vol. hi press. pump and unless you have very good oil seals you'll end up with alot unburned hardended charcoal in your exh. side of your heads.i had to cut my spring back a little.anyway i would think melling makes one of these for pontiac as well as chevy.i called melling to get a new spring and they sent one to jegs for me but told me that my pump was good for 35 at idle and 85 top end.thats just to much.although one has to remember that it is a hi vol. pump and it takes a little more umpf to push that extra oil.still i cut it to much the first time and not quite as much this time.i'm shooting for 60-65.

The Melling M-54 C pump is standard pressure.

oil pump

67 Firebird I've have used the Melling M-54 S pump in my GTO for years. Warm idle pressure is around 35 lbs. and highway 52-60. Have seen as much as 85 lbs at the strip at around 5500-5900rpm. Other than the typical Pontiac rope rear main leak I have had no problems whatsoever.
