not the most scientific site but a fairly well referenced site (operated by Discovery channel).

And of course a wiki site:

So on my tune just have the rev limiter set to 7,400 and go with the stock pump.

Is there aftermarket pick ups or oil pan combination that would decrease the likely hood of oil starvation to the pump during sustained hard lateral forces?

Or is the current design of the pick up, pan and oil capacity sufficient that the only way I will starve the oil pump (assuming proper oil levels) is when I roll the car?
Correct set limiter to 7400 , I have taken my SVT to many tracks making over 320HP on the all stock engine with no issues ever , 152.2 MPH on the front stretch at VIR on GPS

Unless your doing a full blown race car where you can hook up hard where you can keep high speed through the corners dont worry about it
