Dry sump

If you had all the parts (and I do), would you run a dry sump oiling system on your street rod? Why or why not?

I run dry sump on our Sprint Cars and if you ask me, that is the ultimate oiling system for any engine, street or race.

PROS:
1. The dry sump is not as picky about overfilling the reservoir like a wet sump pan system.
2. You can easily adjust the oil pressure to taylor it to the system.
3. The oil stays cooler because it is circulated back to the external reservoir instead of staying in the motor where all the heat is.
4. All parts are external which makes for easy repairs.

There are a few more pros to a dry sump but to me these are the top three.

CONS:
1. Cost more to install

I have the parts left over from my asphalt late model that I'm thinking of putting to use when I start building my motor for my car. The 406 I have is already drilled and tapped as it was once dry sumped. But I'm getting the vibe, from another post, that I may not want to use the block I have. But drilling and tapping isn't a huge project. Thanks for your response.
