I need the height of a stock LT1 b-body oil pan. I'm looking at a Canton Road Race pan (I know I've heard all the bad stuff) but I need to know if its any deeper than my stock pan because I can't afford to lose any more ground clearance. Mine is 10 miles away in a freezing cold garage and I'm stuggling to work up the motivation to get it up in the air to measure it when I know someone here has to have one out of the car on hand. Thanks in advance!

Just a hair under 8" at the back and right at 4" at the front. Don't forget that whatever you get also needs to clear the cross member and the steering center link up front.

If you need more measurements let me know, I have one lying around in the shop.

I also have Jeff Green's old pan here (I think it's a Canton) that he modified to clear the OEM oil filter and cross member. I can take side-by-side pictures if you want.
