At 4 quarts,is this suitable for 450-500 hp.on the street?

Id say its a VERY bad idea personally
,1964-77 El Camino Oil Pan, Big-Block Generation V & VI

if you shop carefully you can find a reasonably priced 7 quart oil pan that should help engine durability.
SHOP CAREFULLY , WHEN YOU GO TO BUY AN OIL PAN for your engine or transmission, <AND ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WILL FIT YOUR CAR CORRECTLY AND ASK FOR SUGGESTIONS ON MATCHING COMPONENTS OR PARTS THAT WON,T FIT

IF you've wondered why I suggest buying and using a well designed BAFFLED oil pan with 7-8 quart capacity its to prevent the oil from uncovering the oil pump pick-up under performance use.
without control baffles oil sloshes away from the oil pump pick-up
