You know Rick I probably have 4 or 5 Canton pans kicking around and one Moroso unit. Working in Ohio I cruise by Summit and check out their scratch and dent rack monthly. From looking at all the pans lately the Moroso pans look better built in the flange area (where the gasket goes) than the Canton pans. The last 4.6 Canton pan I bought was real flimsy in this area where as a Moroso unit they had was double thick in this area. The Moroso pans are not cheap but I think you get what you pay for... Just food for thought.

I don't get to Summit's store in Talmedge Oh. very often but when I do, the scratch&dent section is where I head to first. Some dagone good deals there. Smile

My 460 is going into a 1983 ford ranger. The Ranger will be a 4x4 for sand drags/ mud drags
