Oil Pan scraper with roller lifters yes/no??

Hey there and thanks in advance for sure.
have that 468 with Isky roller cam and lifter.
Was rumored that with roller lifters you want as much oil to be thrown
back up top from the crank to ensure lots of oil on the lifters. My question
is I was going to get the Moroso # 20403 6qt pan, but she has a net to catch the oil. Thoughts?? or some guys at the shop like the 6 or 7 qt Milodon pan with just the kicked out sump and no nets, scraper, trap doors or anything. Any help on which pan would be great. leaing towards the extra quarts due to this thing is going to be nasty and don't want to starve it with a stock OE 5qts actually less because almost one is in the filter.
thnaks again

I always thought a flat tappet would need more oil than a roller,, as that seems to make sense considering flat tappet is flat to flat which makes friction go up considerably compared to a roller.
