In my experience a high volume pump requires a larger oil pan.The amount of oil it will flow will suck a stock pan dry lets say doing a burnout where a continuos high rpm is sustained.With a stock pan and engine bearings clearences correct a stock oil pump should be more then efficent.This is not written in stone and i would be curious to hear from some other guys on this.

I vote for a HV pump and lighter Synthetic oil.

Don't ask me why.
