Question Performance Oil pump?

Is there such a beast? Where would i order one and abouts how much would it cost ya think? I've got a few parts in the corner and plans approaching on the horizon plus am approaching the big 100000 marker SO i need to be flushing my oiling system and installing a new oil pum and was wondering if there even was a higher flowing pump or whatnot. Thanks ahead.

Is everybody too busy laughing at me to post or just scratching their heads as well?

You can probably shim it for higher oil pressure at normal rpms, and a tiny bit lower at idle. I've done this to my family's '96 Jimmy, '87 Camaro, and my '93 3000GT. All of them seem to respond in the same fashion, hardly any sacrifice in at idle and a nice gain in normal pressure.

It's an old trick from the domestic cars. Most mechanics know how to do it.
