right on. I did the rustoleum treatment on my old boat... The paint eventually started blistering and rusting the pan after 2 weeks outside. Apparently the neighbors sprinklers penetrated my cover and filled the bilge just enough. Long story short I was ran the header lines under the oil pan. The T-valve was right under it and in my own haste to make sure it worked I started the boat up. The torque twist of the engine pushed the rusted pan onto the T-valve and punctured the pan. Coulda repaired it I guess but instead I order an 11quart Moroso. They sent me a pan for a Gen 4 when mine was a gen 5. Next pan came in and it was 9" deep. I needed 8"... Next pan came in it was an 8.25" deep 8 quart Moroso. So I banged up the oil pan a bit to clear the pump, got the engine sitting right where we wanted it for the drive angles and got rid of the rubber dampened mounts. $2000 dollars later the pan still wasn't perfect, but made it work... Took two weeks to get all the money back. Good stuff. Next time I'll just call you Tom...
Sorry for the thread jack, in a sense I guess it's on topic... For all you first timers, like I was. MAKE SURE YOU PLAN. Ask all the questions first as opposed to kicking yourself in the arse later!

Actually Jeff I did good till it caught a lilttle sandy patch and almost put it in the "weeds" Had a major "flash back" from 30 years ago (TR4 A in a ditch ) I think it was Brads engine parts in the trunk .made it lite in the front end ,causing understeer  ;D

ps ,dont laugh I did 5 + miles in 2nd and 3rd (I shift this thing at 5500 to 6K) redlines 6500, most fun you could have with your clothes on !
