I can see how that could play out- the high volume pump will tend to keep the oil level somewhat lower in the pan in the first place. That- with the pickup being too high in the first place- could be all it would take.

A standard volume pump isn't a step down- likely it is just what your engine really needs, anyway.

Good luck.
