I used a deepened stock CJ pan on my first 514. I don't see why there would be a problem with any of them. Maybe someone else knows more!
What are your expectations? What's your budget? How much tolerance do you have for maintenance? Is there a fuel limit?Ok so i bought a 429 dove a block and dove c heads, i want to build a good amount of horsepower, i plan on doing a 514/521 stroker kit, a good mild to aggresive cam except i don't know what that would be number wise duration,lift,etc. i have been searching for parts and the oil pan and they say they are not for strokers where can i find a front sump pan that will fit my motor, any info on what i should do will be greatly appriciated, also anyone have a stroker and if so whats the horsepower numbers and what are the 1/4 mile times, i plan on sticking it in a 79 f100 swb 2wd.
i could care less about fuel milage i will get out of it, i would like to still be able to use 91 octane fuel, what do you mean as in maintence? and budget wise i was looking up parts and i got around the 6000 dollar mark, and i know i was still forgetting some stuff, so i don't really care about it as much but its still abit of an issue, i would like for it to be quick, i would like to take it to the strip a few times and mainly use it to cruise and stomp some ponies and chevrolegs.What are your expectations?

Same pan I use, no issues in 10 years.I run a Milodon 10qt pan on my 514 in my 79 f150 no problem with fit .. little bit of cavitation at one time but found running 8 1/2 qts fixed that rather then using 10
she is tight but it fits part #31484
Exactly. In addition to that. Going with a roller cam will require heavy spring pressures and lifters that have to be pulled and rebuilt periodically. What that interval is, I have no idea.What he means by maintenance is your tolerance for working on the car. How often do you want to adjust the valves, tweak the carb and such. The more horsepower you make the harder it is to keep it running. How willing are you to pull the motor, pull the pan and check the rod and main bearings for signs of damage or cap walk.

hydro flat tappet - cheapest, least maintenance, 6K RPM ceiling, mild to moderate performance
solid flat tappet - moderate, some maintenance, 7500 RPM+, moderate to aggressive performance
hydro roller - expensive, difficult to setup on BBF, most don't recommend it
solid roller - expensive, most maintenance, 7500 RPM+, max performance
