is the F body pan recommended for that kit? On paper the dimensions appear it would but I'm not familiar with that kit.

Did we ever get any options for oil pans?  I'm building an LS1,  It currently does not have an oil pan.  Is there a list of ones people have already used?  I would like to find one with some good baffling if possible.

I used a camaro oil pan from Rock auto and pickup tube , wind age tray. Nice low profile. Much cheaper.

The350z: are you using the muscle car oil pan then? Hows the clearance under the car?

I am. Its about 3 1/2 inches from the ground, my car is lowered 2 1/2 inches as well. think I may send it back to summit because it is pretty low..

I used the LS3 C6 corvette oil pan/windage tray/pickup tube. Here's the comparison between C6 and F-body oil pans:

Fbody oilpan hangs about 3/4" to 1" below the front cross member. C6 alleviates that issue, but if you need to drop the oil pan, the engine needs to be lifted to clear the crossmember for oil pan removal.

I have the F-body pan and added the Improved Racing (hinged) baffles and the crank scraper. Should be good to go and clearance isn't bad since I didn't slam my car.
