Default LS7 Lifter changeover

What year did they change over to the ls7 lifters for everything? At least that's what I gather that even trucks 4.8, 5.3 came with the new style lifters? I also need to know how to ID the yr of a core engine if possible. Not gonna reuse or rebuild it's for something else.

I think it was very soon after the LS7 came out. GM saw a good thing right away.

I'm not sure it was put in new engines besides the LS7 right away, but it has been the service replacement since around then. I wouldn't worry if an engine has LS7 lifters in it. They were an improvement, but not a major breakthrough.

Just figured some ls expert on here may know. Prob just stick to 2010+ to be safe, I still need to ID any core I tear down.

Then so are any of our answers. It's about context.

That would make sense; the truck engines were not a priority before then I would guess.
