Can someone explain the purpose of the windage tray that fastens to the main bolts on a 96 5.7 vortec ? Not that I built the engine and forgot to put it on...ooops.

Its meant to keep, in the simplest of sense, the oil from rotating with the crank. Allowing more oil to stay in the oil pan. Its not directly needed in some cars, but with high RPM engines, its a must to prevent the oil from running dry in the pan.
