Can't remember who it was, but fellow recently toasted his JH motor on a vintage event track day using standard pan.  Oil starvation was the problem.  If you plan to go on track with your JH I'd highly recommend the $200 for an Accusump.  I prefer the manual valve Accusumps mounted on the transmission tunnel, but that might not be possible for those with a more street intent.

If you have mechanical gauges you'll find that oil pressure sometimes takes longer than you think to come up to a nominal value.  Particularily if you don't drive the car often, 5 seconds or longer, with the engine idling, can easily occur before getting some real pressure.
