Default JEGS Retrofit Oil Pan

I had my eye on a Holley 302-3 pan for my 67 Camaro, but it looks like they raised their prices about 10% for the new year. I just came across a new JEGS house brand retrofit oil pan, which looks like it comes with more of the stuff you will need for $299. Has anyone used this pan yet? Looks like it comes with the gasket and new hardware too. Any idea which dipstick it uses?

FWIW, I ground about 1/4" off of my LH8 Hummer pan recently crossing an intersection with a dip too fast... Also I obviously need to replace the front & rear main seals while I have the motor out.

Iíd say itís value depends on whether or not itís compatible with the specific engine mounts you intend to use. I can tell you just from the images of the pan that it wonít clear a 1st-gen F-Body subframe unless you mount the engine up high off of the subframe.

Personally I have BRP mounts, which set the motor high (I assume to reduce the chances of their LH8 pans from grinding on the pavement).

It looks like a 1 1/2" shallower LH8 pan to me, which should put it about flush to the bottom of my subframe.

Iíve been looking at that also. Looks like a pretty complete kit for a good price. Hoping somebody had used it ha.

The front pan depth will be a problem unless the motor is sitting up high which isn't ideal because you then run into tunnel clearance and driveline angle issues. Can you make it work? Yes. Is it the ideal setup? No

Trace, If I were you I would just spend the money on the Holley 302-2 or -3 and get their mounts. I did and have been extremely happy with them. Very well designed and everything just fits so well.

I've had my car running for over a year now. The motor does sit a little high, but the driveline angles are fine. Just had to use a couple of the included spacers on the tranny mount, and it doesn't hit the tunnel.

I just looked into this one too. Looks like it might be a good alternative for some swaps. I have preferred the CTSV pan for doing swaps into C-10's, but those kits are getting harder to find and the cost has been over $300 lately. Might have to try this one in the future, it is not quite as deep as the CTSV and the front portion is thicker, but not as tapered as the CTSV pan.

Isn't this based off one of the older pan designs that was bought out and eventually converted to the Holley 302-1 pan?
