I had a freind tell me that nobody were using windage trays in small blocks anymore. He stated that it is not needed with a deep oil pan. He also stated that it hampered oil return to the pan. Any opinions on this? What is the affect on stock stroke cranks & custom strokers? What is the affect on stock & deep pans? I'm from an old school of thinking, if it was good enough for Ma Mopar to use them in its H-P applications, then its good enough for me. I have used them in every engine that I have built. Street, Towing, & Race. If there is some new information on this, lets hear it.
