Planning an LM4 swap into an 87 Regal. I have access to a batwing oil pan and was wondering if it would work in the G-Body. I plan to use adjustable mounts from Dirty Dingo and will mount to a 4L60e. I'll use F-Body exhaust manifolds from an LS3.

Thanks

Everything I have read about them, it would be too wide to fit. I think it also hits the engine cross-member. In researching my swap, there are F-body, muscle car swap ones and the one I'm suing from a CTSV.

I am going to probably use a Holley 302-2 or 302-3 (has drain fittings for turbos).

Thanks for the quick responses! I am finishing up an LM7 swap into an 82 Regal and used the GM Musclecar pan. It hangs too low for anything but stock ride height. Guess I will go with the Holley.

I went with the 302-3 pan because I needed a pan - and this one just happens to have built in drains.
