Thanks for the pic, but I don't think the oil drain can go in that position with the downpipe routed behind the manifold (like this) http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101266&highlight=downpipe.Street Tuner said:You should be able to run the drain in the standard fashion as shown in this picture with the drain running alongside the engine mount (where it uses the metal insert piece) and then back into the sump. Hope this helps -
That is the windage tray. The drain has to be above that for sure (and as high as possible). I will pull the pan again (for the 5th time) before I do any drilling.Oh4GTO said:I belive the front of the pan has some sort of a baffle. I remember because I dropped a screw in to the oil pan when doing a cam swap and it didnt fall all the wa to the bottom. It landed on this baffle that ran across the front of the pan.
