Oil pressure relief valve in pan.

Are you guys plugging off the 14mm threaded hole in the pan that has the relief valve during your DOD/cam swaps? Texas Speed recommends plugging it when using the Melling high pressure/ High volume pump #10355HV that is recommended for our L77 motors.

I just finished a DOD delete/Cam swap, and I removed the oil pressure relief, and replaced it with a drain plug and crush washer
