As a past GM Employee & 3800 owner, I can tell you that you'll need a Crank Kit at best. A crank kit consists of new reground crank & new bearings. This is on an exchange basis too BTW! In other words, that keep your old crank as a rebuildable core.
There is no High Volume Oil pump available for any 3800 at this time.
Dealerships work on the basis of how much $$$$ you've spent there actually! If you're a regular service customer, then they (dealership) will be more inclined to help you out! I know this may seem sad, but it'* the law of every business out there! Any business will bend to help a regular customer as compared to a "Joe Blow"!
