New 98 boxster and getting it ready to track

So I'm picking up a 98 boxster to track/hpde and questions on what do to get it track ready as it is stock, other than M030 suspension upgrade. My two major focuses are saving myself and the engine so safety and engine oil mods.
Safety wise I found a Brey Krause extension and hardtop. I am looking at seats with harnesses. I'm 6'2" 200 and looking into sparco evo seats or other recommendations.
Engine wise-which parts are most important to keep oil starvation on track?
Thanks!

Check my garage for the mods I did for reference. My 986 ran over 100 track days in 10 years and managed several PCA TT Championships. No starvation issues ever.

My short list of recommendations for a dual purpose car:

BK roll bar extension.
underdrive pulley
Porsche OEM X-51 pan ( there are cheaper alternatives but none better IMO)
Cobra seats bolted to the floor for max headroom. (I ran 3 point belts)
xtra wheels with track tires
ST-43 racing brake pads
Motul 600 brake fluid
Check oil level before each run session
