7qt Oil Pan & Pickup SBC Small Block Chevy

can someone tell me the advantages of a 7qt Oil Pan ? (I Think Theres Something about keeping your Oil Cooler) this one has the Pickup included, would this be suitable for street use ? would you need a HV Oil Pump with this, i'm kinda wanting one for a 71 Chevy P/U.

I don`t think a 7 quart pan is needed on the street, that`s a bit of overkill.
I would just use one of hamburgers new pans, a diamond stripper windage tray and let it run at that.

i bought mine for the reason you mentioned,overheating.more oil volume will help to keep your oil cool and anything to keep your block cooler in that situation helps.i think i had some distortion in one of my cylinder cause i could not fix the prolem with out going to extremes.i also used a dual remotr oil filter with qt. filters and an oil cooler among other things.i did finally get it under controll.i had spent to much money to turn back.usually just the goody's in a good 5 or 6 qt. pan is sufficiant.i'd rather use a z/28 oil pump than a h.v. pump.a stock pump with the 65-70 psi spring or a big block pump will work also.i use the big block 65 psi pump and spring (m77) from jegs 21.00.

Heat is part of the reason......also, high revving engines can possibly run out of oil. It all gets pumped to the top and doesn't get back down to the bottom pickup quick enough. More oil in the pan can prevent this.

Personally, I don't think you need a 7 qt pan....maybe 5.

Looks like a Moroso pan with a Milodon pickup. The Moroso pan is actually 8 1/4" deep. You need to be careful with buying the pickup. While I am sure that style will work with that pan, the length is different between a standard oil pump pickup and one used on a high volume pump. Not enough information to make an informed decision. Like others said, no need for 7 quarts on the street, and the HV pump is overkill. Ed www.edgesz28.com

I wanted a nice new pan for my ride and bought a milodon setup. Its a 7qt unit, maybe a bit overkill, but was a good design and didn't cost much more than a normal one for 2 qts of insurance!
