only buy a moroso or something equivalent if you're planning on racing the car a lot or trying to have a show car. Have your pan tapped out for $20-$40. Make sure you have a good welder, you don't want that sucker to leak!

Don't do it this way, that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard. It may work for a while, but eventually it'll leak.

Go right ahead then. I'll be laughing when it fails and your car becomes oil starved.

Why half-ass it...get it tapped properly and it should never leak.

if you are going to jb weld, just make sure the area around it is hella clean and sanded up good. i fixed my radiator with jb weld... first tiem i did it i dint clean it up good and it leaked, so i cleaned it all up, sanded it and did it again. no leaks for more than a year and a half now.
