I am new here. I just built my first big block. I have a 396, bored .040 over, balanced, dome pistons and a lot of good stuff in it. Doing some reading I have seen it go back and forth about using a high volume oil pump with a stock pan. My pan is a little over stock, 5 quarts, is that enough. I also have a windage tray installed. Thanks!

    In response to tvdmusic

having a larger capacity oil pan is always an advantage ,
but control of the oil is vastly more important, than capacity,
theres no real advantage in use of a high volume oil pump in a nearly stock engine,
If you post the info on your car make/model
I may know where you can find a baffled high capacity oil pan at a reasonable cost.
