Another oil pan question

Post  bruno on September 26th 2018, 10:54 am

With doing an outlaw style k-member and steering rack , what is everybody using for an oil pan since there is more space. Do you still go with a dual sump/hump pan ? or are guys going with a dragster style pan

Pan depth would depend on how high the engine is in the chassis then.

A pan needs to be at least 6.5" in the front to clear a Kaase pump.

Most "Fox" style pans are 9" in the sump, others are 8.5"...then pulled up tp ~5" in the middle to clear rack/K.

The Dragster/chassis car pans I have build are usually 7" front and 9" rear.

Generally, the greater the pan volume the better. Go as big as is reasonable and suitable.

I've been running the Moroso 20614 chassis car pan in my mud truck. While it's not apples to oranges, it does have a 6 1/2" front that clears the Kaase pump and 8 1/2" rear with kick outs on both sides. Clears starters fine, trap door baffles and built in windage tray. Typical off the shelf pan that has served me will.

If you can use a chassis pan buy the fab'd pan that Lem sells. It's an awesome pan that for the first time I have zero oil pressure issues at the end of the track. I don't use an accu-sump and can run the oil level (dip stick height) one quart lower than the double hump fox body pans. Trapping at nearly 150 mph has given me pressure issues in the past but not with this pan. I was concerned with header clearance but it cleared well.

Also you expect some fitment issues with a welded piece but this is a quality piece and directly mounted without any adjustment.
