No risk on a C5 batwing pan with oil cooler. The "risk" was in some F-body pans with low capacity pumping too much oil to the top of the motor too fast. I ran a GM LS4 pump (basically a GM Melling high volume) on my last 2 C5s. Had the 42 psi relief spring. Pressure never dropped below 40 on track on the analog gauge. However, you can get into a serious serious discussion about lubrication and pressure vs. flow and what's best. I had no issues with the high volume pump and 10w40 Amsoil for all my years. On the C7 it's a totally different setup with a variable geometry pump. I run 10w40 in that too.
