This question about oil pumps has been beaten to death...and "latech" is this guy REALLY going to be driving around the street at 6500 rpm all the time?? To each his own, but on a mild performance STREET engine a stock pan and Melling M-55 will work just fine. The HV/HP pumps just eat more hp to turn them and it just puts added pressure and wear on the cam gear. Now If you have the money and just want the looks of a Moroso type dual kick out pan then by all means........MHO
