If a front sump pan is used, you also must use the correct oil pump pickup. The parts from his 283 that are presently in use may fit the 350. I highly recommend using a one piece pan gasket. They work excellent. My son chose to use a notched Moroso pan and extended pickup. Here ia a link to the Moroso Pan Scroll down to the lower picture on the site for the specs. Photo of the pan is attached below.

Dont get me wrong mate, I love 283's, and I know it could be done (350 hp). It just seems to me that it would be rather costly to squeak that kind of ponies out of one and might not even be very streetable, as it would need to make use of lots of revs to get there. I still think that 300 hp is real reasonable goal for a street 283. Maybe Im wrong..
