TIA!

C6 LS2 oil pan (has shallow rear sump) (kit with bolts/gasket) = 12581810
C6 LS2 oil pick-up screen (same used on LS6) = 12558750
C6 LS2 oil deflector (same as used on LS6/LS1) = 12558189

I wouldn't think it is necessary, if he can re-use his old parts. I just threw the other part numbers in.

I sure feel better and looking at inside of LS1/6 it is no wonder it washes out. That pan is so wide and flat--I bet 2 quarts could hide in one of the wings under side load.
So, you can swap pans without removing the engine? I've been thinking about installing a Canton road race pan but thought that I'd have to wait until I was planning on pulling the engine.

Wouldn't a real race pan with traps be better than a LS2 pan?

Yes on the install. Took about 3 hours on lift, no need to pull engine.

A Canton pan may be better, but the LS2 looks like it should contain oil for pickup much better than LS1 which is wide and flat.

What are the chances of adapting the LS7 dry sump system to other LSx engines? Any show stoppers. Dry sump seems like the real solution.

Several I think. The LS7 crank is longer to accomodate the different front cover for the unique oil pump. The pan and tank are very pricey.
If you are that motivated, a Accusump is a consideration.

--update--
I finally blew my LS1. Looks like the dreaded rod bolt stretch, so pan is going on LS2 stroker.
