    I'm running an LS3. From my build thread:

    When I installed the electric power steering motor it was hitting the LS oil pan, so it needed to be clocked down to clear the pan, but this made it the lowest thing hanging under the chassis, which I didn't like. So I ordered 2 oil pans from Summit to see which would work. The first one I opened was the GM 12628771, and this fit the power steering motor perfectly. The motor is 3/4 inch below the pan, but still 3/4 inch above the chassis. I also had to use oil pickup 12558251, and windage tray 12558253. The original dipstick worked fine. The other pan was Holley 302-3, and I never opened the box, just returned it to Summit.
