Summit house brand 6 qt pan. Nice pan, good price perfect fit. I have 2241 headers and solid mounts. Over 400 1/4 passes in 4 years no issues.

I use a cheap 7 qt kickout pan on my 496. Got it from KMJ Performance on ebay a few years back. Fits great, doesn't leak and no issues with starter, oil filter or headers. Passenger side pan mounted dip stick.

Most straight down BBC pans will work, as long as they are not for Corvette or Truck. I have the Milodon kick-out pan, but, I have the 2455 headers. The kick out portion will get into being a headache with the starter and oil filter.

I hope my OEM pan will work. It's all sealed up nice. It fit in my '69 Chevelle SS396...

I used the Milodon 30950. It was a nightmare to get the headers in the car with the kickouts, but once they were in, everything cleared fine.

I have a moroso 7 qt kickout pan. i use 6 qt of oil in it. Dyno shop guys have told me that running the full 7 qt costs alot of power. I also run a stock gm vortec starter. When i had the 2241 headers this pan was a pain for oil filter clearance. Now with Lemons headers its fine. The only thing i don't like about it is the location of the drain plug. If i was to buy another pan i'd make sure every last drop of oil drains out. I spent a little extra and get a 1 pc oil pan gasket and also a oil pan stud kit. I hate leaks. Allthough i have noticed that a 4.25 stroke crank will take little bites of the blue felpro 1 pc pan gasket.
