So on my stock oil pan should I keep it on and install a HV oil pump and windage tray or should I change out the pan to a bigger qrt size with a HV oil Pump and windage tray just want to know if by doing this will I have a more solid build and will engine last longer...... I have 460 vodoo cam, rpm intake manifold, QFT 850 cfm carb, msd dizzy and box, double roller timming chain, 125 shot nitrous and looking at getting ( SCJ or Dove heads still undecided there its a money thing might just put back on the d3 heads I spent 650 dollars on porting and cleaning up) LOL Etc????????

Using the information you provide, install the oil pan you were using unless it has problems! If your crankshaft's bearing clearance is good (.001" of clearance per 1.0" of journal diameter) I wouldn't use a high volume pump and if on the street I may shy away from the windage tray.

Just a first response.
