Ya I know what you mean I tryed the oil cooler route last time I did not like it after all if you wanted to get all the oil out of it you had to remove the hoses and blow them out that was 3 Qt's a big mess every time.

A big pan I still haave my 8 Qt's I can run a high volume pump and not suck the pan dry doing so.

I heard pro's and cons about high pressure pumps for a street car DD.

More oil cooler it can run ect keeping the motor well lube and cool makes motor last.
