Doesn't the pan sit so low that the crank isn't even spinning in the standing oil? Most chrysler V-8s, the crank hangs low, somewhat submerged in the oil, making windage trays usefull, but the crank in these 2.2s is pretty well up in the block. No?

2.2 no, 2.5 with no balance shafts-yes.

All engines will benefit from a windage tray and when things get violent, IE high RPM, cornering, the oil gets picked up and hits the crank causing it to slow down, also the oil gets aeroated and I am sure more but bottom line, they help.

Do you have any pics of the windage tray you made?

the crank dosent set in the oil but it is close enough that the windage the crank creates will actually pull the oil up into the rotating assembly

I'm thinking a making a windage tray from expanded metal (wire mesh plate) and using the old balance shaft holes,bolts, and some spacers to mount it. What do you think? :)
