With regard to this post, if "behind the inner fender" means cut into the cowl, then I'd recommend going with a 3 gallon as well since you're going through the trouble of making something fit.

On a side note, I'd be curious to know if Steilow added to the Peterson reservoir on his builds. All of the ones I remember seeing mounted the dry sump against the core support, and if my memory serves, they were all 2.5 gallon because there is no room to go any deeper.

That's what she said....

Ya Matt that's the plan, just like this pic

Just trying to determine the best way to route to oil lines, Peterson (among others) make an AN fitting adapter for the LS7 oil pan. With the DSE subframe and DSE headers I'm thinking of running a hard oil line through the subframe

Thanks Dave

2.5 gallon... 3 gallon, same thing

I'm not kidding. there's one part number 08-0025-ATS, and some sites list it as 2.5 while others list it as 3. As far as I can tell, we're talking about the same thing.
