Default Changing from rear oil pan from rear sump to front sump. Help Please

I am rebuilding a 302 from a mid to late 80's mustang to fit into my 1966 mustang.

I have purchased a front sump oil pan to work with my older car. I also have to replace the pickup and oil pump.

I understand that I will need a front sump pickup.

As far as the oil pump, I have been searching the internet and have come up with to many choices such as high volume, standard, high volume extra 25%, etc.

Anyways, my question is, which is the right one for the job ( I don't plan on racing my car, its just the standard daily driver)? Where can I buy the pump and pick up as a kit? Can I use the old oil pump from the 1988?

Thanks

I also converted a rear sump to a front sump a couple months ago. Summit racing had an oil pickup and pump kit really cheap, like twenty bucks if i remember right. I am using it on a pretty high performing motor so i think you would be fine with a regular one also. Ill post the link if i can find it from summit.

WRT the oil pump. A mild driver motor would do just fine with the standard stock replacement. High volume oil pumps are meant for an engine built for racing and serves no good purpose in a close to stock engine. It's my understanding that the excess volume being pumped just gets bypassed. With that said, there are alot of engines out there that don't need the high volume pump, but have one anyway and no harm done.

I'm not sure about reusing the old pump wrt the different style oil pan, but for my dollar I would replace it for good insurance.
