the accusump sounds like a good idea, even good with a Turbo as it will provide some oil to the turbo after shut down. And for the NA you have instant pressure at start up.

not sure on the scraper... wouldn't the oil cloud provide lubricating of the block and cylinder walls?

the accumulator would also be an easy addition after the build is done and if I find that I do need it or want it, it would be an easy addition.
