Hello everyone, does anyone have experience with the Gen 6 bbc engines in older GM chassis? I want to install the 502 ho in place of the 454 that's in it now but heard the oil pan won't clear the crossmember. Then I saw somewhere that it will fit but be too low. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 502 blower motor in my camaro. The 502 oil pan will not work. I put a stefs pan on mine but it is very close to the crossmember. I also have a 502 ramjet that I am putting in another 69 and it has a milidon pan. It fit with no problems. Buy the milidon pan and the correct oil pump pickup. I also used the Hooker super comp headers 2-1/8". I had to ding the driver side by the power steering pump. The passenger fit right in but I had to cut a 5/8" socket to fit the sparkplug on # 4 cylinder. After market motor mounts with moroso steel mounts fit with no problems.

Jon, Did you put a 502 Ramjet under a standard cowl hood?

Hi Jon

I had to change the oil pan to fit in my 69. If you do a search under my name
Joe 69 there is a lot of info that may help you out regarding the 502 (what will fit not fit etc.) If you have any specific questions just let me know.
