Oil pan recomendations

Post  dirt_worker on July 19th 2013, 6:09 pm

I currently have the fox body moroso oil pan on my 557. In mounting it in my newly fabricated front suspension I realized I have TONS of room to upgrade my oil pan to a full sump pan.
What kind of pan are you drag guys running on your Stroker fords. Id really like to hear some recommendations on what ya'll prefer...

I wish I could help, but that's not an area which I excel. However, can you define a "full sump" pan or it's design?

Looks like a nice pan for dyno testing.

I'm convinced there's power to be had in an o
il pan swap...do plan on taking it back to the dyno.
Porting my heads and manifold first though so idk if ill take the time to swap pans on the dyno. (Although I might cause I'm interested in "learning" how to make power....
so nobody has a pan they like or recommend that's better than my leaky fox moroso?

Something with a kick-out/recovery pouch on on the passenger side [the direction of crankshaft rotation] and windage tray[s] built into the pan. The goal is to minimize the amout of oil that gets wraped around the crankshaft.

Finding all the power you can will not be an asset to your engine if oil control is absent in the application. If you are incorporating an internal oil pump and your application is a Ford Fox platform destined for drag race application, my recommendation for an oil pan is the Canton 13-772 along with the related parts. This design pan may be available in aluminum as well. If your engine design allows an external oil pump, the same pan without the front oil pump sump.

On another note, why is the Moroso part you currently employ leaking, workmanship or installation problems?

W the new strut front suspension on my f100 I have nothing in the way.
The rack is under the front two inches of the pan so as long as the front depth isn't too terrible just about anything else would wrk.
I'm considering a Jeff johnston one piece deal.
anybody used one?
