400 SBC oil pan question..What quart size of pan do I need?

I am building a 400 small block for my G body malibu. The motor is a 10 to 1 compession motor with Sportsmen 2 heads 6500 rpm max. It will spend most of its time on the street with a visit or 2 a year to the strip.

Question is what quart size oil pan do I need? Do I need a pan with a wedge tray? I am going to run a high volume oil. I just dont what to over kill with a big pan if I dont need it.

Thanks
