I agree with techinspector. At high rpm with high volume pump a lot of oil stays up in the motor so you need more capacity to draw from in the pan.A windage tray or a crank scraper is also a good idea as it helps return the oil to the pan quicker and cuts down on parasitic loss from the oil clinging to parts. ( could be considered neglegible)
