That pretty much settles it. I am going to be running a roller cam so I guess no turkey pan.


That's weird... The Roush engine in my story about the turkey tray had a roller cam. I wonder if some are made slightly differently?

Dave, you may be right. I think I'm thinking of the FE pans where you have to cut them up to make them work around link bar lifters.

Yes i use the pan on different applications depending on intake. For example if its a intake that can take on heat from oil like torker etc i cut the intake ears off the pan and adapt it underneath intake. Try to deflect as much hot oil as possible. When you modify like this you also have to put some drain holes as oil can splash up from sides. Fwiw you can only get the 2v pan nowadays I beleive.

Ya know steve, I heard that a few years back as well. But checking my napa inventory shows both the 2v (MS96010) and the 4v (MS96012) as available. So I wonder if they started making it again or are still depleting inventory?

Just got the MS96012 from Summit. comes with the turkey pan, rubber end gaskets, rtv sealer and paper intake gaskets. Not sure what the paper are for and it isn't mentioned on the instruction sheet?
I'll toss the rubber gaskets and use a bead of "the right stuff"

The paper gasket goes on the head then the turkey pan.

A lot of extra places to leak/suck oil.

I've never seen the valley tray be any more leak prone than any other gaskets and I think its probably more durable than some sort of "high performance" gasket especially in a situation where the intake also has water such as an Oldsmobile or a Ford 460.

They seem to work fine on big Chrysler engines too but one time I did see one that was puffed up like a cooked container of Jiffy Pop after an explosion in the crankcase.
