Aside from slight dimensional differences and dipstick on the opposite side, the crank scraper on the Canton pan appears to be the primary difference. Not sure how important that is. I'm leaning toward the Moroso pan for the difference in cost and many reviews on the Canton pans leaking like I have.
I have a Smedling Performance 418w stroker built in 2004 when they were still in CA. Now their in Born, TX and still building very high quality engines. Have not had one issue with the engine. Has about 5500 miles now. I don't race it however, sometimes my foot gets VERY heavy.

Just an update/test. I'm making great progress and splitting off a couple new threads as the build starts gathering some momentum. It has turned into a multi engine build of different "heat levels" and I really would like to share the experience. But not until I get this damn photo posting down. Turns out that the first step is figuring out which cloud service actually won the war to do me the favor of hijacking my photos into their cloud service. Then getting the pics one desires to share all in one easy to deal with spot.

Default Oil pan pic. Way too big! Please help.

Success!!! I ask that someone please verify that yes, there is a photo of an oil pan on your view of the above post, and that it is indeed larger than normal. It appears that I can attach pics directly from one of my folders, just that I now need to resize them before posting. Each step comes with a "PHP error" message and when I hit the back button it does what's asked.

Yes. It is as you describe.

Thanks Tommy. BTW, that pic is the inside view of a Armand's racing oil pan. I may have read somewhere that he used to work for Aviaid? Either way I will say that his work is top notch. Below is an attempt at resizing a photo of one of my Edelbrock heads. Have them out of the box for a once-over and to upgrade the springs. Even though the cam specs put the springs inside the envelope, I prefer them to be in the middle of the window not at the upper end.

Ok, it appears that the photo of the head went OK. I need to know that the size is coming out ok. Then I can actually start posting some good material.

I would recommend a Ford Performance short block. A stronger 4 bolt block with revised priority main bearing oiling. Already machined, clearanced, balanced and assembled with all the good stuff. Steel crank, H beam rods and forged pistons. Pick your own heads, manifold, cam and valvetrain. Cost is a deal at around 6K.

I would second the above recommendation. Especially to anyone who isn't into their build as far as I am now. The Ford Performance option appeared to be outside my budget, but based on where things ended up, it wouldn't be all that far off.

You had mentioned a duel quad set up I would recommend a signal for ease of set up/tuning.I will admit though the duel has a better cool factor .

Default Probably starting a new engine thread, here's why.

Tough decision on whether to even continue on this forum or not. Maybe it's just me, but joining in here feels a lot like moving into a small town. There, I said it. Took a fair amount of self-reflection to say that, wanted to make sure I wasn't going away all butt-hurt because the cool kids wouldn't play. But then I realized that's exactly what I was doing, decided to htfu, and move forward. The build has changed dramatically in both scale and scope. Please check out the new thread and hopefully you'll find it interesting.

Where is your new thread?

BTW, there is an active Hurricane builder/owner forum:
https://forum.hurricane-motorsports.com/forum/index.php

Also a Hurricane Cobra Registry - is this yours?

Sorry Bob. I ran a little late last night to get it started. Thanks for the tip on the registry, hadn't heard of that one yet.
