I'm leaning towards the standard because my engine really isn't that radical. The only reason I was asking about the HV pump is because of the deeper pan that I'm installing.

Not radical daily drive street engines are where the HV pump is of good use. High RPM engines can actually do worse with a HV pump. I think you misunderstand what a HV pump does.
