I have a Moroso #20190 pan on my 383 with studs and Milodon windage tray and it works fine. http://www.edgesz28.com/edgesz28/engine.htm

See page 36 of Moroso Catalog: http://www.moroso.com/catalog/pdf/Oi...ccessories.pdf

You will need the #20205 pan for an 86' and newer block

Best of luck, Ed

Just curious, did you align hone the mains with the new studs installed?

The machine work was done at Houston Engine and Balancing. To tell you the truth I dont know. I do know that the machine shop I used has a very good reputation in Houston. If they went through the extra steps to bore and hone with deck plates then I would assume they would align hone with the studs installed since the block was returned from the machine shop with the studs in the block.

The 96-98 Vortec truck engines came with a windage tray so that may be a cheaper option, depending on Tray size/shape.

Yes, the last one I used didn't need any massaging of pan.
The older Blocks & pans normally need more grinding & a few hammer taps on pan rail for Rod clearance. Type of Rod will determine how much.

Just a couple of thoughts . . . Most all of the aluminum cast oil pans will not work in a stroker application (they are a bit narrower internally), at least they claim they don't work on a 400 . . . . Also, when buying studs (like ARPs, etc) for the mains, I think a 383 requires buying the 400 studs. I think. Gotta get the windage tray down below the crank throw. How did I come to this conclusion, you ask? ? ? Bought learnin'

Ok well im using the scat 6'' pro stock rods. i might look into this. could save 200 bucks. Is there anything to gain by going with a milodan pan.

Using those Rods, you may not have to clearance the Block pan rails at all.
Milodon pan may make a little more HP at Hi rpm, depends on Pan & Tray design.
