    Part # for the Moroso oil pan?

    I believe my 79 came with the dipstick on the driver's side (I don't have it in my possession to verify); what are the implications of moving it to the passenger side?

    Any thoughts on the likelihood of it fitting on a 79 with headers and Steeroids?
    I'm really clueless on this stuff so I can use any help I can get... would I NEED to change the oil pickup to use this pan/ is it recommended? I could still use the stock pump, right?

    Know whether this pan would still work if I put in a 383 crank and 6" rods? (I think if I get the part # Summit will tell me that...)

    I'm interested, but I just don't know what I'm getting myself into... I'm kind of pushing it with the dynamic compression ratio on my build so I could use a few degrees of decreased engine oil temps that this would offer me.


    Thanks- sorry for all the questions.

    Saw an old post where you had an "air intake" by PaulDana. I wont assume you still have it but how did you like it?
