    I was lucky and found a set through eBay for $26 + shipping. If you have to buy them new, they are very, very expensive and it would almost be better to buy the complete tray/bolt kit from Summit for $86 instead. Be patient and keep scouring the web.

    A windage tray is not needed for a cruiser unless you want to spend the coin "just because". It came stock on 318s that were in police cars (not sure what years) and I believe that it was stock on 340s. If a person has a serious need for one of these for maximum power generation and hard launches, then they should also be putting some kind of baffle into the oil pan to keep oil in the sump during hard acceleration. There are some good photos of home-made baffles on this site if you look around.
