Though a seemingly simple part, the oil pan of this Top Stock engine represented dozens of hours in design and construction. It was designed specifically for the chassis of Monty Bogan, Jr.'s '69 Camaro. Within those dimensions, however, the pan is shaped to eliminate crankshaft windage, and, knowing how little oil will likely be used, supply every possible drop of oil to the pump pick-up. Although a wet-sump oiling system, the final design was influenced by the shape of NASCAR-style dry-sump pans.
