Default What Oil Pan will fit?

Hey guys. Rod & Custom Mustang II Suspension is on my 65 mustang. Getting a late model 302 (87-93) engine. I'm trying to figure out if I need to buy the Rod & Custom oil pan to clear the cross member or if I can just use the factory oil pan that comes with the 87-93 motor? They look nearly identical. Thanks

R&C Oil Pan:

Talk to the R&C guys and get what they recommend. It is a very tight fit. Others have had some issues finding a pan to work.
The gas pedal fits best right up against the firewall, so I figure it should be there as much as possile
