Id go for a dodgey bar of extra base fuel pressure to be honest. Especially if you need to change the reg to a vac referenced one (depending on where your 1mz came from.

Yeah, i believe the vdo pumps are only really designed with temps up to about 80 degrees in mind, which makes them great for driveline components, but not engine oil. I also believe the vdo units dont handle running dry as well either.

Hopefully your drive tonight went well, and you can continue with the next stage of its progress

It already has an aftermarket regulator on it (looks ebay spec, but seems to work...), so cranking in some extra fuel pressure could be an option. 
 
The drive last night did go well. Excluding the 50 exhaust leaks (I'm missing some gaskets currently...), it sounds nice enough and despite being a 3" exhaust, it is rather quiet.
 
This weekend I'm going to start looking at mounting the scavenge pump and plumbing some oil hoses, very keen to get the turbo actually fitted and spooling.
