X2...had a coworker who used to boil them every time he left work. So bad the traffic had to stop because you couldn't see. And this was a busy 4 lane road. Needless to say the cops nailed him eventually.

Here is some info on the car. 400 sbc flat top engine . 200 cc heads 2.05 int . 292 Isky mega cam hyd. Vic jr 750 dp. Th 350 built by yours truly as was the whole car. Tci street fighter converter. 8 inch Ford rear with 3.55 gears. Not sure about the weight of the car just yet. But man what a hell of a day. I hadn’t been down the track since 2014. I’m officially rehooked.
I had a 1980 Monza that I swapped a sbc into. I first used a stock oil pan that I heated and beat into submission. Then I swapped that out for a Moroso pan meant specifically for the swap. However, the Moroso catalog said the stroke would have to be 3.48 or less. So I put a 350 crank in a 400 block (379 cid with a .040 overbore). What oil pan did you use on your swap? Stock unmodified crossmember? Take care. Tom Worthington

I used a kevko drag race pan. It’s based off of a stock pan but with the kicked out sump and a built in wind age tray and scraper. The car was originally swapped using an old Don Hardy kit. It allows a stock pan but its close!! My 71 back half Vega used the milodon Vega pan. It fit great with all kinds of room . Looking back I should of used it. It would of given me more room when I was building the headers for it.
