Oil Pan / Sump Pictures

I have an Aviaid sump. Happy with it, although had to make a slight modification to fit the starter motor.

Bump on this ancient thread haha.
What sumps are people using on their 40’s?

Anything different out on the market that people prefer?

Build is going to be an SGT.
I use the Aviaid GT-40 oil pan on my 427FE. I also installed a 3 QT oil accumulator - allows pre-oiling before start up and will provide oil pressure for a short burst should I lose it on a long sweeper corner. I don't think that will happen with the Aviaid pan and the 9 quart capacity but it is there just in case. I have a traditional lube system - not dry sump.

I went with a Moroso 20536 wet sump pan for my 351W block. I tried several other pans that said "they fit 4 bolt main blocks" the others all hit the rear main. I was really disappointed with the Canton pan, the welds were horrible and looked like they would leak. The pan was nothing more than a production pan cut up with a large reservoir welded to it. The Moroso fit well and has machined billet ends on it. I didnt take pictures of the inside showing the baffles and trap doors, but they look like they will do the job for road racing. I only needed to slightly modify a baffle to clear the high volume oil pump. I think a stock pump would of cleared just fine.

So I’ve seen these options rather than the expensive Aviad pans.
Thoughts?

should they be fine clearance wise also? (For chassis and mains).
It’s a Mexican 302 that I’m using.



This Kevko pan doesn’t mention any trapdoors etc:

this is the size of the aviad pan:
