I would avoid that pan or anything built similar, I dynoed a 540 WITH a whipple 3.3 with that exact pan (customer picked it and supplied it), worked good on the dyno BUT the metal was very thin, where it was welded it was even thinner and I am almost certain over time it WILL crack. Was very flimsy and thin, Smitty

Get the deepest pan possible (14qt) so you don`t aeration of the oil and the falling oil pressure that comes with it .

That`s my suggestion.
I have the above pan , it`s been welded on without issues , it`s is well constructed
