That looks like it would hang too low. The F-body pan would fit better.

look around a bit. I found mine for $100 with pickup, tray and new gasket. I'm surprised they have gone up so much.

Check out the Conversions and Hybrid forum at LS1tech.com. I believe they have a sticky for oil pans.

Given that it's been over a year since his last post I wouldn't be holding my breath but yeah, it would be nice to get a follow up.
Then came the churches, then came the schools
Then came the lawyers, then came the rules
Then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
And the dirty old track was the Telegraph Road.
