There seems to be a difference of opinions between mechanics on how well the stock scavenge pump system works. JW didn't think they worked that great, choose to ditch it and go with a gravity return at the time of the rebuild. The JW sump plate is approximately 1.250" deep at it's lowest point with the return line and drain plug on the side. In your photo you have stuff lower than that on 4 sides so I don't see the sump plate being an issue. Yet, I've seen some awfully weird offs at the track, so to each his own.
I'm going this route for it's simplicity, and I have a Carrera oil tank I'd either need to modify or swap out for a turbo tank to use the stock system.
