How far down were you able to lower it? My concern is I'll have the same stroke as you, but the aluminum rods are probably going to be to large to use this pan even if I lowered it. Hate to buy a $500 pan and start reworking it only to find out it's a no go.

I dropped it 1/2 inch and bowed the center down for insurance. Looked like 1/2 of clearance when finished.
Wish I had taken a picture

I haven't dealt with Aviaid in 20 years, but when I did, for a wet sump pan, they would build whatever you wanted. They sent me a sketch of their wet sump pan and I made several changes to the design for my application.  They built it like I asked them to, and there were no issues with fit. 

I would suggest calling and talking to them about your application and required clearances.  See if they can built the pan so it won't have to be modified once you get it.

Coloradoamx which brand of starter are you using? My Robbmac starter looks super close to the outlets.   Not sure a 90 degree fitting will clear. Thanks.

I used a Powermaster XS mini starter.  No issues at all.

I ordered one last week for the dragster. They are building it now and it should ship in less than 2 weeks.

Did you order the pan or the whole dry sump setup?

I already have a dry sump set up, so I only ordered the pan. In fact I ordered two pans one for each motor.

In hind sight, I would have ordered the pan with the pickup outlets on the left (drivers) side. It is wide open over there and would have had a better line to the pump on the right side.   Plus I wouldn’t have to buy a different starter because mine hits fittings. They need to be 3/8-1/2 lower.
