Chevy truck oil pans?

I'm putting a '95 5.7L into my '87 Chevy P/U. Does anyone know if the oil pan config is the same on these motors? (Need to buy a new pan due to rust holes...need to get the right config.)

Thanks in advance

I think the newer engines come with a windage tray that mounts to the main studs. A pan for an older engine may not be deep enough in some areas, so when you pull the pan off the 95 check to see if there's a tray. Seems like someone else on here ran into a problem like that a while back.

Thanks, the 95 pan has a tray in it. I'll be sure to get the same one.
