Dan, I use and Jon Brakke used a stock oil pump, with remote coolers up 
front, and either -10 or -12 lines to and from. Oil Pressure is 75 psi. 
Have to be very careful when engine is cold not to run rpm up too high as 
oil pressure will blow out remote filter gasket. IMHO, stock pump is more 
than sufficient for a remote cooler.
