Oil pan thoughts?

With my recent build I am thinking about going with a mmr pan and high flow pump. Wanted to get yalls thoughts on it, worth the money or leave it stock?

Build consists of:
Custom ground cam from Todd Warren.
.600 extreme lift springs from Brian Tooley Racing
45.5mm intake valves from Mod Max Racing
Mac long tubes
99 NPI motor out of a Crown Vic 44k,
Bullitt intake
Bullitt heads ported and polished to the max.

I would keep it stock in my opinion and get a melling high volume or 4V pump. The stock pan can hold 7 quarts without an issue.

A melling high volume pump is the way to go. But need a big pan so it won't pump pan dry. 8 or 9 qt. if you can?

Not pretty,But effective!

Only issue I see with a bigger pan is that you may need an aftermarket K member in order to accomodate it. Other than that I say go for it.

What are the specs on your cams? I only wonder because of the springs you mentioned that the cams might also be .600" lift. Depending on duration I could definitely see a good potential for ptv clearance issues without valve reliefs being cut into the pistons.

I have heard that the 4V pans can hold 7, a lot of Termi guys run 7qts. Was not aware that could be applied to stock 2V pans though, always thought that 7qts would be overfilling and cause foaming or whatever issues are associated with that.

The MMR pan although called a 7 qrt actually needs 8.5 quarts to reach the full line. In regards to the oil pump, the melling is not a bad part but they had some troubles with sticking pressure relief valves so we moved away from them, each MMR oil pump (whether it be the billet or standard version) are each bench tested before shipping (see our you tube channel to watch), they also include a lifetime warranty against breakage . Let us know if we can help, we have linked the parts below for others interested:

Oil Level? - Forums at Modded Mustangs

Read that thread...real proof that the 2V pan can hold 7qts. I am pretty sure the pans are the same, if they are different, only the baffling inside is different but I'm not too sure on that...

Dammit Jon, you just cost me another $9. I just did an oil change but I guess I gotta go out n' buy # 7 now. Good thing oil changes last a year in my car (I'm down to doing it annually now as the last couple years my car didn't get to the 5K mark).

Good thread btw, post #16 and then CliffyK's comment in #17 make this a done deal for me. Thanks Jon!

I keep that thread handy for threads like this one I still only run 6.5qts but I might as well dump the other .5 in....

Yeah I was on the fence about 6.5 or 7. Think I'll just run the add'l 1/2. I am waaaayyyy to ocd about my car lol, I should be happy with the 6 that are in there and just keep this info in my back pocket for another day. My car isn't even running right now ffs and that extra qt is on my "list" for when I go out later today.
