    ls1 oil pan problem 5.7

    My pan and oil filter will not clear the crossmember and rack. The filter and sump are located toward the front of the engine. Will I be able to order a pan with the filter+sump toward the trans . thanks.

    the LSx motors are being swapped into everthing now so I would think you could get a retro fit pan/ filter. I'd try calling Summit racing or JEGS, if they don't carry them one of them might have some leeds for you

    what are you using it in, your Nomad? any chance you can notch the crossmember and slightly shift the steering linkages?

    I am pretty sure the fbody pan is rear sump. You will also need to change the pickup to match the pan. Moroso and canton are two companies I know that make aftermarket pans.

    yup, you obviously pulled your ls1 out of a GTO they are the only ones to run a front sump pan...

    Fbody and Corvettes have rear sumps but be careful fbodies pans are different from Corvette pans and Corvette pans change from engine to engine. Even though you could take an LS3 or LS2 pan and throw it on your LS1 engine they are different however each time you step up in engine size you also step up in sump size and capacity so it gives you a few options as far as specifics go... for example if you upgraded to a highflow aftermarket Oilpump you probably want to get a larger capacity pan so that you don't starve it.

    just my .02$
