Default LS Hydraulic Rollers

I'm in need of 12 of the Chevrolet GM Performance lifters for a V6 project.
Part # 88958689
All I've found is sets of 16 (Scoggins-Dickey, etc.)
These could be take outs from a S/S engine, as long as they're new.
Any ideas /suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Looks like a V/SA project.

It does, doesn't it? But it's not. Of course that would be V/Stick anyway.
No, it's a 231 Buick. Same roller from the GM parts bin.

Just an FYI , I have been rebuilding a 3800 for a Firebird street car and discovered that while the lifters look the same between the 3800 and the Chevy lifters , the pushrod seat is different . You will need about a .100 shorter pushrod if you use a Chevy lifter .

Thanks for that info, Russ
I planned on new push rods too, ordered to the length I'll need, so we'll pick up on that, at that time.
The checking lifter we have is from an LS build too, so should be all good.

Still looking....

Question for the engine builders / COPO owners }
Did all the LS COPO cars come with the close tolerance "bowtie" hyd. roller lifters ?
How about the 2018 cars, now that the rule changed?
I assume they are replaced with a solid roller for Super / Stock.

The first COPO’s came with the CTS-VR lifters made for higher RPM. Then 2nd and 3ed year cars use the Johnson lifters. Both are hydraulic. I could be wrong but don’t think the 17 or 18’s come from the Factory with a solid lifters... I could be wrong on the new setups.

If you are looking for a good cheep LS lifter the Stock LS7’s are hard to beat for the price. I would be shocked if you can find only 12 just buy 16 and call it a day.
