350 oil pan

I'm new to this site and am starting to build up my 68 350 camaro engine. I'm looking to see if anyone else has swapped out the oil pan for a bigger one and what ones you've used, i'm a little concerned about ground clearance. I'm looking into swaping out my 4 qt 7'' depth rear sump (wet) [stock] with a milodon 6 qt 8.25 pan depth rear sump (wet) and windage tray. Will i also have to replace my pump for this swap or just eh pick up? I believe i'm running a stock oil pump. Thanks for any advice/help/thoughts.

Re: 350 oil pan

Welcome to the Club! Hope you enjoy your membership here. You're from where?

The oil pan I use fits nicely and has a side drain plug, Moroso 20190 and use the corresponding pump pick-up, holds 7-qts. Place drvr's header in car first before dropping engine. There is no room for installation of headers later......

There is the OE Z/28 oil pan and it holds 6 qts.

Newbies buy first round..............

Re: 350 oil pan

what type of oil pump are you using? Stock/high flow? I've read that there is no real advantage in using a high flow pump and for my application i don't really see it either (street/strip). But then again -> newbie. I'm out in Roxbury New Jersey. Maybe when I visit friends down there and head to lunasea there could be that drink.

Re: 350 oil pan

I had the crank assembly clearance an extra .001", so I run a high volume pump and it does very well.

Your application, a stock pump would do fine. Just use the designated pick-up for the pan and pump used.

Check my website for info on an eight-quart CV products road racing pan. It's a superb design that fits great and is relatively inexpensinve.
