On my stroker I used a stock appearing 5 Qt oil pan from www.midwestmotorsportsinc.com
Pan came 'in the white' so I painted it Chevy orange.
Pan fit ok, but the scraper was hitting a couple of crank throws. Bent down the scraper a little, with a ball pein hammer, until I got clearance.
One extra qt. of oil is what I wanted and got.
