Response to Block Filler questions.
Most fill blocks to within 1" of deck . Some have filled to the half cylinder mark also. My last to blocks were 1", when we dynoed we seen high oil temps( 240 ish) but the Dyno guy figured in street or drag car they be lucky to hit 200 which would be livable. He suggested a finned oil pan would likely really keep it cool. My car is not plated and uses the factory mounts. I think you would be fine. Maybe install oil temp guage and see where your oil gets. I put a 557 ford together for buddy that's cemented in a mud truck. He says he has to heat cycle engine for half an hr to get oil temp above 160? He figured it would run through traffic without getting hot.
