Default Windage tray??

Quick question..

I have an Fbody ls1 with the factory windage tray, and I just ordered a front sump gto pan for my swap, I was wondering if A) can I use the stock f body windage tray, or do I have to get a gto tray? And B) do I "need" a windage tray imparitively if I can't use the f body tray?

Thanks for the advice in advance

use the windage tray, keeps oil from sloshing around with the crank, I had to put a front sump oil pan but I got mine from sikky as a kit and the pick up tube was made for the swap, you run into a problem trying to use the stock pick up tube in the gto pan, and then you run into a problem if you try to use gto pick up with ls1 windage tray, but you could just drill a hole in the windage tray to clear gto pick up tube
