I've heard that but not experienced it. I find it hard to believe since even with the short pan it holds 6 quarts which is more than any older version SBC. I'll guarantee you that it will hang low and you will run the risk of smashing it on a rock. When I had the long pan in, it was lower than any other part of my frame or drivetrain. Right now, I have an integral skid plate that is flush to my engine pan and my trans pan and it's all scratched up. I've literally been sitting on my skid plate right under my engine.
