It all depends on your bearing clearances rod, main and cam and from there lifter bore clearance. 99% of the street performance engines we build e use standard volume high pressure pumps.

On all our engines build we line hone all our blocks and hone the big end of the rods and try to maintain .002 to .0025 on the rods and mains for street performance and if the cam housing bores are over size we line bore them to the correct size.
