Quick question.
Since im pulling the oil pan and taking off the oil pump its a Melling 60psi MEL-54DS the stock replacment.

They make the MEL-54F which is a 80psi pump which would raise the pressure 30%.

My question is if i went to this 80psi pump is there any bad it could cause?
They say its for 455 motors but the 400 is basicly the same block.....

Just trying to get all my ducks in a row before i lift the motor and pull the pan.

Advice? Thanks
