Man I have to ask how you fit in this thing. I'm 6' 235 and the last time I sat in one it was pretty damn tight. I know your a big guy so just wondering. I've passed up a few 45's cause I couldn't fit so if you do I'll be pissed. lol

I got serious with crossfit and paleo diet. Weighing in at 202 lbs now at 6'2". But I have been more than comfortable in 45 even when I weighed 245

Well now that the Baja45 is "done" I am back on this project. Motor, trans and tcase are in. I started on the front end tonight. Look for a running and driving rig soon. Need some plumbing, steering and we got our selves a bad ass retro desert racer.
I have a though of modifying the stock fuel tank to a alltech type setup with 2 in tank walbros.

The most neglected project in my shop got a few hours of love today.
Because I am running stock springs the truck oil pan was just to close to the diff and driveshaft. I swaped to an F-body oild pan. I used the f-body pickup tube and just cut down the truck windage tray.

Justin, have you looked at an H3 pan? It's what I'm planning to use on my swap. It has a lot more clearance on the diff side and is shorter front to rear than a typical truck pan while staying plenty deep. They're cheap too. $150 gets you a brand new pan with gasket, hardware, windage tray, pickup tube and dipstick.

The part number for the pan itself is 12614821. There is a complete kit though. I got mine from Jegs. Chevrolet Performance 19212593 Chevrolet Performance LS Muscle Car Oil Pan Kit - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS

GM apparently started marketing it as a "muscle car pan". When I got mine from Jegs a month ago everything included appeared to be genuine GM. I won't be back at my shop till Monday, but could take some measurements or pictures if you have questions.

Awesome build! Can't wait to see it sitting on all fours.
Take a look at the C5 Corvette exhaust manifolds. They dump a lot higher than the block hugger style making the connection to the down pipes clear the frame better.

What exactly did you have to cut on the windage tray to make it work with the f-body pan? I'm doing the same thing right now but I was going to source an f-body windage tray v/s modifying the truck one.

You have to cut the front off the tray I think it was about 3.5". Then you have to notch one of the shaped holes to fit the mount for the f body pickup tube. 15 mins of work.

Yes... I think it a pretty common practice.

Any issues with cutting down a truck windage tray to use with an f-body pan? - LS1TECH
