Electric oil pump modification

Hey guys I need some advise and hope someone knowledgeable can chime in..

I have a 2006 QP and in the morning when the engine is cold ( but not cold outside say 10 degree Celsius) my variators clank away for about 2 minutes and the oil pressure light doesn't shut off for about 20 seconds. I've tried oil from 10/40 to 0/30 but nothing really makes a difference.. After the 2 minute clank the car is perfect and performs amazingly, no check engine lights etc..

I was thinking of installing an electric oil pump with check valve to prime the engine before starting, Please let mew know what you think

Dry sump engines have multiple oil pumps and these have an extra one top as well. You won't be scavenging oil from the engine to the tank, so it will just fill the engine with oil. Also, this will not run the high pressure oil pump on the cam that provides pressure to the variator system.
