I just put a high volume oil pan on my power plant. I think it is a 7 or 8 qt.

What do you guys for checking oil?

I use a dip stick, lol. put in your appropriate amount of oil for your engine, not necessarily the capacity of the pan. find any dipstick thats 6 inches or so longer than stock and fits snugly to the ckeck tube. after running the engine, clean-measure-and notch the new stick at the full mark and clip the end off leaving 1 inch below notch.(if the stick bottoms out before its all the way in then you'll have to clip before measuring or your marks may be wrong) bob

Light it up, Baby!

Figure on the pan being 7 or 8 quarts and a ph13 sized filter holding at least a quart and viola, I always change my oil after every race so I figure 8 quarts in 8 quarts out, I dont use a dipstick I seal it off you car also mount an ispection hole in the top of the pan extension. Eddie
