Check out post by Coloradoamx

Topic: TA Javelin 5 ltr

This is listed under the Racing/Circle track category. Looks like he is using all the Aviaid goodies!

Yes, I am using the Aviaid pan and pump.  I like the setup as well as the expert advice from Aviaid.  They have been around forever, and pioneered dry sump back in the early days.

Yes I have this pan also.   I had to modify it over the weekend. I found out on Friday the rod bolts  from #5,6,7 & 8 on my 3.80 stroke w/ Compstar rods hit the louvers.  I had to modify the windage tray to lower it.   Also changed the type of "fender clips" that the windage tray bolts attach to.  Installed the clips that have full cylindrical threads, purchased aluminum 1/4 bolts and used medium thread lock. The fasteners  provided were steel bolts and fender clips that have 2 flat half sprung metal tabs for threads.  I wanted to make sure they wouldn't vibrate loose.

To post a photo hit the reply and look for the 6th icon to the left. Image of a tree. Click on that image and the choose the photo. Click upload and it will appear on the box on the right. You'll figure out the rest from there.

This what I wanted to hear. I going to be using a 3.8" stroke with aluminum rods, so I doubt this pan is going to work for me unless the louvers can be moved down a lot.

Yes I had to move the louver tray down almost flush with the front half of the pan. Bent the 4 tabs down.

I didn't have any stroke issues because my engine is de-stroked.  2.5" stroke.... although my engine is built by Barry Allen, so I don't know specifically when he had to do in terms of mods.

You can see where #7 & 8 rod bolts scraped the 3 center louvers on the top row and 2nd, 3rd and 4th on the lower row from rod #6.
    In my rush to modify it, I failed to take a picture before I bolted the pan back on.
