It is possible to option out your wet-sump oiling system with the pan and pick-up, which again is dictated by your needs. A street motor may need the simple stock pan (shown at right), Mopar Performance, or Milodon steel replacement unit. Race engines can use the Milodon setup with either the static pick-up and deeper sump, or the swinging pick-up in applications when hard shifts and wheel-standing weight transfer will take the pan and oil to non level positions. Note the sump baffling welded into the aluminum pan. Matt Hensley can also fabricate a custom pan for your car or street rod if that is what it needs. Of course, you could also be the first guy on your block with a dry-sumped 318, but you'd better have your wallet handy.
