hey well i ordered an oil pan Moroso MOR-20460 which i thought would be alright but i guess they engine shop is telling me its way too deep and i should go shorter and wider if need be.

MOR-20460
- 8 quarts
- 9.750" depth
- 4.250" maximum stroke
- also MOR-23030 windage tray
- also MOR-25970 oil dipstick
- also Summit SES-3-90-08-007 oil pump/pickup

i CANNOT use this and all we be for sale. but wondering who is riding a big block and what oil pan are you using with no complications. the shop would like to know ASAP so they can order me a pan.

I am using the stock oil pan. I think my big block was from an early 80s truck.

yeah i figured it was just the headers im running 2" hooker super comps. do you have enough power to lift the front wheels off the ground? im just worried about hitting mostly when i come back down.

When I mocked up the big block, I had a Moroso 8qt. deep pan. It hung down below the front crossmember by 2 inches. It fit, but hung too low for my needs. I ended up using a Big End BEP 43011 6qt pan with kickout sump. Fits good. I'm sure Moroso makes the same style pan for a few more dollars.

if the car would hook, probably..
i finally got the low-down on g-body suspension mods and will be replacing and relocating the upper control-arms with adjustable units and relocation brackets, when i'm done the "instant-center" will be 6" off the ground and 50" in front of the rear-axle centerline. throw in some double-adjustable shocks..then see if i can break the axles..lol
