oil pan questions

Im pretty sure i know the answer to this but i wanted to make sure.
Im putting a big block chevy into a 79 camaro and the engine came out of a 98 chevy truck. Will the oil pan fit in the camaro or do I have to buy a pan for this application. I would imagine that it wont but just checking. I'll do a mock up soon but was wondering if anyone knew.

Re: oil pan questions

Imho, if it is a 4 qt pan w/ the rest in the filter to make it a 5 qt pan, you will be fine.

A 6 to 7 qt total capacity Big Truck oil pan w/ it's bigger forward small front sump won't fit.

Same w/ the 'Vette pan here if not mistaken.
