Did any 429/460 ever come stock with a rear sump oilpan? I am putting a 429/C4 into a 1988 Turbocoupe and need to use one to get it in there,
Thanks for any help and since this is my first time ever dealing with this big beast of an engine I will be around here a lot!

Is the pickup tube something readily available at a parts store like Napa or will I need to get a junkyard part along with the pan?
Thanks.

For right now I will be concentrating on getting the suspension working/hooking so the motor will stay very close to stock.Later I will build a stout piece for it.
Preliminary setup looks like this
429 freshened up with new bearings,rings,valve springs and seals but otherwise left alone
small cam,around 500lift and [email protected]
850 Holley
to rev no higher than 5000rpm
C4 tranny,stock convertor
3.55 gears
vehicle weight around 2800-2900lbs
I had planned on just running the stock 4v intake but can borrow a Torker 2 if its worth anything on such a stock setup.
Thanks...

hey frank, just about any aftermarket intake is better(and about 20#'s lighter)than your stock intake. now, i would recommend to have a look at the fms cams, they have some great hydraulic grinds. i have ran stock 429's 6000 rpm all day. the most important factor is to replace the stock valve springs. good luck w/ your project!
