The standard oilingsystem with the single vane-set is sufficient for a 45; it doesn't even require much more oil.
Giving it twice as much by boring the right crankstud at 180 degrees from its single hole is a simple and more than enough upgrade.

For the BTSV however, developing more heat, the standard system can bennefit far more from an upgrade.
