Default After market oil pans?

Has anyone tried any of the aftermarket oil pans? Canton, Morose ect. Also some baffle kits avaible. My chassis only lets me fit the steel stock pan the Alum pan is to deep and the braces fit my frame. Car is for track day use and should really be dry sumped but I have not even driven yet. So I thought one of the baffled good for now?

The Canton/Moroso are actually pretty big, will they fit your setup?

The Canton and Moroso pans are virtually identical as far as size and dimensions. I had both at one point and compared them side by side. My chassis is a k native chassis that uses a steel pan, and I had to modify the Moroso pan to clear my front sub frame.

Canton says there is 6 1/8 deep called them sales says they copied steel pan. Moroso says there's is 5 1/2 deep. Canton claims 4 doors, Moroso does not say. I think either will fit since you had both did either seem better for road racing? Only using to see if my car is worth it then will do new motor and found old midlana 004.JPGdrysump

I ended up returning the Canton pan because there was a bit more distance between the oil pump pick up and another person wasn't able to build oil pressure because of the increased distance. The baffle design for the pick up was different between the two pans. The Canton pan was a diamond shape baffle around the pick up with 4 doors. The Moros pan has a square shape baffle, like what most baffle inserts look like, with 3 doors (1 large and 2 small). I don't road race, so I can't comment on which would be better.

Thank you sir. I am thinking the Moroso will work fine just going to check out OBX if I can find them.

I'm sure it will work fine for road racing. I don't notice a huge difference in the baffle design when comparing it to the pan baffle kits that I've seen. The issue that I had with sub frame clearance was on the front of the engine. The factory steel pan angles up to clear the sub frame in my chassis. The Moroso pan doesn't have that notch, so I had to modify it to clear. Another point worth mentioning is that the flange on the Moroso pan is thicker and wider than a stock steel pan. If you're using a lower timing chain guide, like one from HPT, you will need to machine some clearance in the bottom section of the timing chain guide.

Is the alum (stock) oil pan lower than (stock) steel one? I seem to remember trying it and went back to steel. I have no ground clearance problems because of rear mounted motor. All it needs to do is not be lower than chassis. I have 1/4 inch clearance under load.
The reason I ask is there are some good looking baffles kits for alum pans

I'd have to measure and compare. I'm sure I can dig out some of my oil pans as soon as it warms up a little.

The z3 is lower than the a2 pan, or vice versa. There is a thread here about it. Curiosity killed the cat I think the title was. There you will find their differences and how the steel one compares.

Only pic of mine I can find at the moment. Sits a bit lower since I have bottomed it out on a speed bump and my car isn't that low. I can try to get some pics of baffle once I take it off to go back to stock.
