Default What oil pump with piston oilers?

Should I use a high volume pump with piston oil squirters or should a standard pump be sufficient? Or possibly even a dry sump setup? As of now I could go either way as I don't have any part of the oil system yet. But not really looking to spend a wad on a dry sump system. It's a 427 with the ls next block. What you guys suggestions? Thanks for any help.

You should be fine with a quality high volume high, like a melling select.

I went with a Dailey Dry Sump for my LSX LLSR Build with Squirters.
You will need more volume for squirters, 1/4 mile and street a
ported Hi Volume Melling or LSA pump should work up to
~7000 RPM. 1 Mile, Top Speed, or Road Course, 7500+ RPM
I would strongly recommend A Dry Sump to protect your investment.

I wouldn't think that a standard oil pump would be enough. It's going to see the 1/4 mile track and some limited street use.
