Why don't you just buy an aftermarket road race oil control pan? If you fabricate one yourself and make some miscalculations, you will have an engine good for a boat anchor or the like.

I would get the proper pan for the proper job. Ever look into anexternal resivoir system, I hear they work quite well. I am planning on getting one for my car.

Re: oil pan modifications ideas? (for road racing)

If you are going to buy an aftermarket oil pan there are a couple on considerations to keep in mind.

1. It will have to clear the k-member if you have the stock one and not a tubular one.
2. There will need to be enough clearance between the oil pan and the k-member if you are using the stock exhaust routing.

I strongly recommend just buying a pre-made pan. Go to Canton's website, they offer a road race style pan that will work with the stock crossmember and crossover exhaust. I'm running the 15-244t with long tubes. The canton pans have bungs for oil temp sensors, trap doors, windage trays, crank scrapers, you name it. I love mine and am glad I got it. I auto-x the car and I run 1-2 HPDE "open track day" and wanted to make sure I didnt run the engine out of oil. At 3000+ rpm around the right handed sweeper at Nelson Ledges the oil pressure gage never moved.
