If you use a High volume oil pump be sure to use an aftermarket high capacity oil pan made for Road race.
Or Drag Race for what your intentions are.

Stock pan use a stock oil pump only.

High volume pump you run the risk of sucking the pan dry at high rpms.

Worth reading all.

Always used a drag race pan on my TA.
HIGH Volume high pressure oil pump I use.
9 quarts in the pan.
