    hey guys I'm getting ready to purchase my oil pan to put my 5.3 in my car. Does anyone know the advantages of running the Holley swap pan instead of just an fbody pan? It's a little more expensive, nothing crazy. I just want to check with you guys to see if you reccomend one over the other, or have had bad luck with one. Also with the Holley pan, is all you need to purchase separately is the dipstick and dipstick tube? Thank you.

    I have the Holley pan and there really is no advantage over the F-body pan. In hindsight I would have run the F body pan like others here have. I was running their accessory kit and a few other LS swap parts so I got a package deal, but other than that there's no real performance/clearance/fitment advantage from what I have read.

    I was able to use the stock dipstick and tube from my LS376, fwiw.

    Go with what's cheaper. They Both work fine. I would even see if Dorman or Delco makes the same pan without the GM mark-up.

    It's the same as the F-body pan. It's summit....send it back if something is wrong with it. You would be surprised to see who makes the same part for multiple brand names
