Late as always to the oil pump talk -

For the SB Ford the weak point in the system is the hex drive. I can tell you 
first hand that when they twist off you can only run 20-30 seconds full 
throttle before the engine will seize up ;). Also any one that I have talked to 
about SBF pumps for racing engines seem to sway towards high volume not the 
high pressure pumps and never use a stock pump drive shaft in HP applications 
(Get an ARP or other high grade one). I brought this up before but the lines on 
the tiger oil systems are not something I would use on any performance motor 
that is used hard. I would say -10's would be minimum as I think the tigers 
stock is -8 and not high flow hose or fittings for that matter. I try to run 
-12 line for oil stuff works great except if the oil pump shaft fails...

Lots of 2 cents -)
