383 oil pan size

My engine builder said he wants me to run a high volume oil pump, will a 5qt cheater pan with windage tray and baffles work? Or will I need bigger compasity pan
He suggested a 6 or 7 qt pan, but it will hang too far down for my liking
Any suggestion ???

I have used the 7 Qt kick out pans. Stock depth with extra capacity to the sides. I ran a 68, stock front suspension with a 383 in the 11s.

Re: 383 oil pan size

I'm most likely going to order a Canton road race pan for my stroker build with a 7.5" sump 5qt. I was looking at the milodon stroker pan,but it has a 8.25" sump 6qt cap. I want all the clerance I can get,since I'll be low. Both pans are good for upto 4" stroke.

Re: 383 oil pan size

not all headers will work with a kick out pan. keep that in mind
I got a 7 quart deep pan from chris straub with baffles and windage tray, along with the proper pick up tube .
the pan does not go below the sub frame on my 68 with stock suspension

Re: 383 oil pan size

I had a Canton oil pan on my 454. For some reason I always was seeing small drops of oil when parked. I could wipe the pan down good with a degreaser but the little drops would come back. I finally purchased a Moroso 7 qt oil pan and the leaks stopped. I check the Canton oil pan out when I had it off and the pan had cracked along the welds. I mentioned it to some friends and they said they had heard the same thing. Just letting you know what happened to me.
