has anyone done a 351 conversion and what oil pan are you running, i'm currently running a stock pan but i'm building a stroker and want a larger capacity pan but i don't want to lose ground clearance, i had a deep sump pan on a chevy i used to own and i hated it
if i have to use the stocker can i run a hi volume pump with it ?

I've used Canton and Moroso pans. Ground clearance is not a problem. Do not run a high volume pump. Run a stock volume pump and 5 quarts of oil in the pan. The bigger pans are designed to keep oil away from the crank. There is no need to run 8 quarts of oil. High volume pumps just drain the pan quicker, require more oil in the pan and put more stress on the distributor.

I'm using a Canton on my 425 and I like that because it has a built in crank scraper. They are both built good. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
